Information is Beautiful

Everything is beautiful
In its' own way
- lyrics, Ray Stevens

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know I love graphs and visual representation of data. Today I "discovered" InformationIsBeautiful.net which collects excellent examples of visual displays.

For example:

Which health supplements are backed by scientific evidence?

A color wheel of emotions

Plants that grow well together

This one I've posted before, The True Size of Africa
but this version also shows the US compared to Europe and US compared to Antarctica.

Bottom Line

Numbers by themselves don't say much. A picture makes a huge difference.
