Time for another round of cool charting / info-graphic ideas around the web.
Nametrends is a cool website totally dedicated to analyzing and showing baby name trends. They have pretty interesting stuff like, how baby names ending with -lie (charlie, willie, ellie etc.) fared from 1880. Go ahead, see the neat stuff at nametrends. [via kottke]
Flare is a powerful tool for visualizing large amounts of data using Action Script. Check it out. [via FlowingData]
This cartoonish visualization from XKCD pokes fun at the sizes and boundaries of various online communities. Really hilarious and neatly done. [via cool infographics]
This pretty visualization of bar codes uses information contained in the black stripes to generate Bezier curves (ahem!) that look like a tree, hence the name bar-code plantation 🙂 [via swissmiss]
