Colorful Data Visualizations from the 1800s

Colorful Data Visualizations from the 1800s | History 2[+or less 3].0 | Scoop.it

Good data visualization helps us see the meaning in data, hence it has always been an important tool. Today computers crunch numbers and design programs help us visualize data in many ways, from infographics to interactives. But in a time before those tools, designers were creating truly beautiful work that should be an inspiration to anyone working today.

These maps are pulled from the 1870 edition of the Statistical Atlas of the United States, visualizing data from the 1870 census. Each cover a different aspect of the rapidly changing America. While the book is full of detailed visualizations, these maps are particularly notable. The choice of visual presentation and vibrant color palettes make them enticing (and a little surprising) seeing as they’re from the staunch Victorian era.
These just prove that no matter how tedious the subject, you can always inject a little creativity.

This is a pretty informative interactive map of the largest ports in the world. Very well put together to help some understandings of trade. Most of the ports are on the East coast of China which is the Pacific Sea. The reason there are probably so many here in China is because they make a large amount of product that needs to be shipped worldwide. They are like the leading country in imports and exports to other global or major global markets.

This more clearly shows the regional restructuring of the global economy than just about anything I've ever seen, especially manufacturing.  The 8 largest and busiest ports in the world are all in East or Southeast Asia (and 11 of the top 13).  A quick glance at the historical charts will show that most of these were relatively minor ports that have exploded in the last 20 years.
