Smart Grid – Where Power is Going [infographic]

Smart Grid – Where Power is Going [infographic] | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it
Why should an everyday homeowner care that the smart grid can increase the U.S. electric grid's efficiency by 9 percent?

And what does that amount to in terms of energy and monetary savings? This infographic visually highlights those savings and what they actually mean to consumers.

 

The effort aims to connect the consumer with the smart grid, by explaining it simply and driving home the many benefits of smart grid technology, including: cost savings, energy efficiency, improved outage detection and resolution, as well as environmental benefits,.

“By highlighting the conveniences and benefits the smart grid can bring to consumers, the SGCC and its members can help consumers understand the smart grid just as they understand other, consumer-friendly, ‘smart’ technologies they wouldn’t consider living without – such as a smart phone, computer or television.”

A Living, Breathing Infographic: A Look at the Web's First Socially Generative Visualization

A Living, Breathing Infographic: A Look at the Web's First Socially Generative Visualization | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

The idea of a Socially Generative Visualization originated out of a section of the design handbook INFOGRAPHICS.
An SGV, as described by the authors, is a new direction for data visualization– one which marketers and content consumers alike should take note of– especially as content distribution continues to be affected by socially relevant data.

What’s the next step when you’re looking to give your viewers a deeper interaction with your content? Apparently, we should be looking at “socially generative visualizations,” a novel approach that combines the best aspects of traditional static Infographics and classic interactive interfaces with a new purpose: “to allow the viewer to interact with the content in a more meaningful way by contributing to and actually being a part of the measured data that is displayed.”

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.
