When did people first start writing about effective ways of visualizing data?

Your answer might go back to the 1980s (Edward Tufte, perhaps) or even further back into the 1960s (Jacques Bertin, maybe). Few people would go back so far as 100 years ago. That’s right: one hundred years ago...

Carbon-dating improvements show that Neanderthals disappeared from Europe much earlier than thought.

 

Neanderthals and humans lived together in Europe for thousands of years, concludes a timeline based on radiocarbon dates from 40 key sites across Europe. The results1, published today inNature, may help to end a century-old deadlock over the demise of the Neanderthals and their relationship to humans.

Infographic World War I 1914-1918 Borders, state leaders and military alliances In 1914, the long-established world order began to crack apart, the 19th century system came to an end, and humankind entered a new age of unprecedentedly brutal conflicts in terms of their scale, the number of casualties and destruction. Russia entered this war as an empire with a huge economic potential, expanding industrial production and confidence in its political influence. But Russia lost the war,the Tsar abdicated, the economy was ruined, and the fire of a Civil War swept through the country. After losing four extremely influential empires, the European and global political mosaic reassembled into a new and extremely fragile world order, which inevitably led to World War II. en.ria.ru

See The Ancient Roots Of Modern Infographics In "Book Of Trees"

See The Ancient Roots Of Modern Infographics In "Book Of Trees" | Navigate | Scoop.it
Manuel Lima's The Book of Trees takes us back to the earliest, nature-inspired frameworks of data visualization.

The first great Age of Infographics took root 1,000 years ago inspired variously by quests to categorize scientific knowledge, organize Greco-Roman scholarship and, weirdly, trace family bloodlines so that aristocrats could avoid incest as defined by Vatican rule-makers.

 

Manuel Lima's illustrated history The Book of Trees (Princeton Architectural Press) chronicles how Medieval-era designers instinctively used trunk and branch diagrams to impose order on the explosion of new data. One millennium later, tree-based graphics continue to pack considerable punch as information delivery systems.

World's Largest Tree Of Life Visualizes 50,000 Species Over Time

World's Largest Tree Of Life Visualizes 50,000 Species Over Time | Navigate | Scoop.it

Temple University researchers recently put together the world's largest tree of life visualized across time. The family tree of living and extinct organisms encompasses 50,000 species—only a fraction of the world's history of life—and would easily take up hundreds of pages if laid out linearly. To fit their work onto a printed page, the researchers, led by evolutionary biologist S. Blair Hedges, instead decided to visualize the data as a spiral.

If you teach history/social studies this post is right up your alley. The website MadeFromHistory has put together 30 infographics that look at 30 key events in the last 100 years, and they do acknowledge that the have "left out quite a few events" due to space limitations. You can also find sections that focus on World War I, World War II, and Civil Rights as well as a Referenced Blog, which shares a wide variety of topics.

For many students, using visuals helps them to recall information more readily. If you teach history from the past 100 years it is worth checking out this website.

David Baker's curator insight, July 29, 2014 12:04 PM
Visuals that include original source materials make classroom experiences much more relevant to students. It allows the story of the events to be made more real whether it is the experiences of WWI, WW II, or Civil Rights.
