The scientist in me loves to see data presented in a logical and easily understood fashion. One of the best seminars I’ve ever attended was a one day class called Presenting Data and Information – A One Day Course Taught by Edward Tufte. He took information that could otherwise be construed as boring, and turned it into graphical representations that bordered on art.
One of my favorite blogs is Information is Beautiful. They don’t post all that often, but when they do it’s worth a visit. Today’s post is about sunscreen. They also have some interactive infographics.
I received an email recently from someone who also does infographics. His is a little different from other infographics I’ve seen – his is dog-related. Does it get any better than this? Dog stuff and data all in one place! He gave me permission to post the graphic here.
Who ever thought data could be so much fun?
