Top 10 Video Infographics of 2012

Top 10 Video Infographics of 2012 | Journalisme graphique |

In the great tradition of end of year blog posts, here's a feature on the top 10 video infographics of 2012.

Over the year, I’ve curated 222 videos on this site [], and reviewed hundreds more. As part of my process of watching and curating so many infographic videos, I started to keep my own 3-star ranking system of these videos in a spreadsheet to help me keep track of those that I think are the most outstanding. The result was about 60 3-star videos in 2012. That’s too many to feature in a top X list so I turned to the Likes and Comments of my top ranked videos (and in doing so eliminated videos only featured on YouTube since YouTube comments are pretty much trash). This resulted in a list of 10 videos that had triple digit Likes on their Vimeo pages.

Voila! A top 10 list. So, in a ascending order, here are the top 10 most liked animated video infographics featured here in 2012, including number of Likes and Comments for each (as of December 30, 2012).

The Intersection of Geography & Data: 2012's Best Maps

The Intersection of Geography & Data: 2012's Best Maps | Journalisme graphique |

It's been an eventful year for cartography.


Development and disaster continue to mold the physical world, but for mapmakers, keeping up with geographic changes is busy work -- a tweaked direction here, a freeway exit there. It's very important busy work, as we learned this September when Apple reminded us not to take a good map for granted.


The intersection of geography and data, though, is just beginning to fill out. Together with interactive functions like sliders, timelines, and embedded information, the best new maps resemble Rand McNally's about as much as movies look like photographs. Creating an accurate representation of geography and infrastructure is only the tip of the iceberg.

What happens when you integrate statistics about rising seas, gang affiliations, metaphors and beer?


A whole new understanding of the way the world works. And some pretty sweet maps. Without further ado, the top favorite maps of the year...

A gallery of different approaches to visualizing topics covering a broad range of data through cartography and mapping...

Examples are supplemented with a summary of the intent, process + graphics of each map, noting the elements that make for successful representations of specific concepts, ideas + data.

From urban issues to voting trends to navigation apps and software, maps are tools that can be highly effective in data visualization, as evidenced in this cartographic collection curated by the Atlantic Cities.
