5 Beautiful Visualizations [Oct 24]
Every week, Pointy Haired Dilbert celebrates the art of chart making by sharing 4-5 of the most beautiful visualizations floated around the web in the last few days. Take a look at them and have some inspiration and fun 😀
This is a simple world map, but each country colored based on the most popular social networking site there. As you can see, US is MySpace, Canada is Facebook and India is Orkut. Findout what is most popular in your country. [via Digital Inspiration]
If you want to get a pulse of global finances (and feel scared) then this is the place to go. They have a world map with each country having square bubbles of the leading company stocks traded there. The bubble size represents the market capitalization and the color for the price movement. As you can immediately see, the world is red, deep red. [via Information Aesthetics]
NY Times tries to answer the important question: “Can a president tame the business cycle?” by looking in to the past and plotting how each of the past US presidents have managed various key parameters. As usual, awesome work by the NYT Team. [via Infographic News]
What causes Obesity? This huge system influence diagram tries to connect all parameters related to obesity and how they effect each other. Very informative and interactive. [via Information Aesthetics]
If you can combine personal ads posted in sites like craigslist with the location of the hookup, the mash up would be a fun way to explore relationships. What you are seeing is a part of New York hookupmap as on today. [via CNET]
