No point to the arc or the dotted lines, but the content is kind of interesting. Who knew the Hindus were rich?
Emotions are the result of how well reality meets up with your expectations. I go back and forth between liking this graphic and thinking the it’s a little too vague and disconnected.
Design wise, I suppose the colors don’t really add anything – so sure, make it black.
Some slick programming in this annotated exploration of 50 years of poverty statistics. Tough I’m not a fan of the pie charts, per se, the rollover drill down is a nice idea. Be sure to click on the small “change year” to bring up a timeline slider that updates in real time. Like I said – slick!
Ok, confession time. I’m not posting this because it’s a great infographic or timeline. I’m posting it because I love vintage trucks. Particularly those in the 50s and 60s.
A detailed map from Pop Chart Lab. Has all my favorites on it!

Jer goes on to look at Avengers by first appearance, sex, robot, gods, and in part II who appeared more, who created the characters, and so on. I only wish he had shared more about how he built the visualization tools.

A nice interactive visualization of gay rights in the United States, by State. This was created by the Guardian in the UK – where, interestingly, the conservatives support gay rights.
The Pimkie clothing company has come up with an interesting real-time fashion indicator: They video what people are wearing as they walk down the street in Paris, Milan, and Antwerp (supposed fashion capitals), and analyze what color pixels are moving. You can then look at the findings in real time, for yesterday, last week, or last month. Apparently, peach-ish red is huge right now in Paris. (via StoryTellingWithData)
