Jonathan Harris of Flaming Toast Productions (incredible webseite!) developed six amazing maps for the INA (International Networks Archive) of the Princeton University. The six infographics are dealing with an array of major current world issues, from the serious to the seriously frivolous.
“The purpose of the Archive is to assemble data sets relevant to empirical research on mapping the global web in a central location and to standardize them so the various indicators can be combined. Given the immense amount of work that defining a global web involves we argue for disseminating the raw data as widely as possible so as to recruit the largest possible number of collaborators.”
Usually the maps may not be reproduced or rebroadcast without express written consent of the INA. But after I asked them, they were “delighted” that I want to use them.
These graphics show the strenght of visualisations. Putting a lot of information into small space, without appearing boring or overloaded. Be sure to look at all of them here.
