Infographics Galore!

Quite a few infographics have been shared recently, and they’ve prompted me to begin a new weekly feature I’m calling “Infographics Galore!”

Here they are (you might also be interested in A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists On Infographics):

The best dataviz & infographics of the year: the Information is Beautiful Awards Longlist 2017

12 Visual Hierarchy Principles Every Non-Designer Needs to Know is from Visme. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Creating Infographics.

The Two Koreas is an impressive interactive map about the North Korea crisis. I’m adding it to A Beginning List Of The Best Resources For Teaching & Learning About The North Korea Missile Crisis.

THE GENESIS OF EXODUS: Violence, poverty, and social disintegration: the root causes of Central American migration is an interactive map. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About World Refugee Day.    You might also be interested in The Best Resources For Learning About The Children Refugee Crisis At The U.S. Southern Border.

Data USA has a ton of infographic resources.  You can read more about it at Google Maps Mania.

Here’s why the wealth gap is widening between white families and everyone else is a series of graphics from The Washington Post. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Wealth & Income Inequality.

Fascinating – & Depressing – “You Draw It” Interactive Infographic From NY Times

The New York Times periodically published “You Draw It” infographics – it gives you the chance you draw what you think is the answer and then compares it to the actual data. I’ve previously shared two of them:

You Draw It: How Family Income Predicts Children’s College Chances

You Draw It: What Got Better or Worse During Obama’s Presidency

Today, they’ve published a new one, You Draw It: Just How Bad Is the Drug Overdose Epidemic?, which lets you compare the number of Americans who have died of drug overdoses to the numbers who die from other causes.

It’s engaging – and depressing.

Infographic: “15 Fairytales From Around the World”

I’m adding this infographic to A Beginning List Of The Best Folklore & Myth Sites:

15 Fairytales From Around the World - PlaygroundEquipment.com - Infographic
PlaygroundEquipment.com

ADDENDUMN: Here is a comment left by a reader: “An interesting info graphic, but please note the term “Eskimo” is no longer an acceptable name for the people of the north. In Canada the term is Inuit / Inuk. Eskimo is seen as derogatory.
I didn’t read the rest of the descriptors thoroughly, but would hesitate to use this if in the main body there was a major flaw.”

The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2016

the-best-collections-ofdddd

I still have to post my choices for The Best Infographics of 2016 but, in the meantime, other people are beginning to publish their own choices. So I thought I’d create a separate annual “Best” list of those collections (they also include some that try to explain the year in charts and infographics).  I’ll be adding tons more over the next two weeks.

In addition to exploring these lists from others, you can check out all my lists at A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists On Infographics, including The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2015.

Look for my choices sometime next week.

I’ll add this post to All My 2016 “Best” Lists In One Place.

As I mentioned earlier, I’ll continue to add to this list and new collections are published elsewhere – there are a lot more to come (check out last year’s list to get an idea)

Here are The Best Collections Of Infographics, Charts & Maps – 2016:

The Best Infographics of 2016 is from Visme.

A round-up of the year’s most popular charts, maps and data visualisations is from The Economist.

Here are the 2016 Winners of the Information Is Beautiful Awards. You can also see them in a slideshow version here.

10 of the Best Infographic Examples of 2016 is from HubSpot.

THE 45 MOST CREATIVE INFOGRAPHICS OF 2016 is from Column Five.

August’s Infographics & Interactives Galore – Part One

There are just so many good infographics and interactives out there that I’ve begun a semi-regular feature called “Infographics & Interactives Galore.”

You can see others at A Collection Of “The Best…” Lists On Infographics and by searching “infographics” on this blog.

I’ll still be publishing separate posts to individually highlight especially useful infographics and interactives, but you’ll find others in this regular feature.

Here goes:

What Did The Earth Look Like? is a neat interactive which shows 3D images of the earth at different points in its history – ranging back to 600 million years ago? Thanks to Google Maps Mania for the tip.

Writing Systems and Scripts of the World shows a map of the world and displays the writing systems practiced in those areas. I’m adding it to The Best “Language Maps.”

Child Poverty Down for Whites, Asians, Hispanics, But Steady for Blacks is from NBC News and has an interactive from Pew. I’m adding it to The Best Visualizations Of Poverty In The U.S. & Around The World.

This map shows how red states increase inequality and blue states cut it is from Vox. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Wealth & Income Inequality.

Visualizing Africa’s Progress in Health, Food Provision, Political Freedom, Poverty and Education is from Our World In Data.

Alien Deep is an interactive from The National Geographic Channel. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Oceans.

Even Graphics Can Speak With a Foreign Accent is from National Geographic. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures.

I’m adding these next two infographics to the same list:

Around The World In 30 Unique Modes of Transport

Flags of the World: The Stories Behind Them
