The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012

The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012 | K-12 School Libraries | Scoop.it

2012 might be the year which we reached 'peak infographic'.

You can’t have an issue or a piece of data without putting it into a picture so it’s easier for people to understand. While this has mostly resulted in a glut of ugly graphics that don’t actually do anything with data (and you’ll see some of these below), it’s still an incredibly simple way to get information to you fast. And this year, some of our most compelling content has appeared in the format.

These are some of our favorites.

How do you tell a story with statistics?  How to you make visible the hidden and complex ideas hiding in the numbers?


Infographics is a solid answer for these questions. 


Take a look at some of the best!

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 | K-12 School Libraries | 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.”
