Vintage Data Visualization: 35 examples from before the Digital Era | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Graphics, charts, diagrams and visual data representations have been published on books, newspapers and magazines since they've existed, not to mention old maps and scientific illustrations...

 

Despite the lack of tools such as the ones we have at our disposal nowadays, they are as inspiring and important as the best contemporary visualizations. Visit the article link for a gallery of vintage visualizations...

A Guide to Infographic Elements

A Guide to Infographic Elements | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

When it comes to visualizing data, it’s important to pick the right graph and the right kind of data range. Make it too detailed, and information gets lost and the reader leaves confused. Too simplified, and your data’s integrity is weakened.

 

Choosing the right infographic element shouldn’t be an art but common sense. After all, it’s an infographic – readers should get the gist of things at first glance and not have to get crossed-eyed in making sense of things...
