E-Waste by the Numbers: Infographic

E-Waste by the Numbers: Infographic | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

Tech enthusiasts like ourselves tend to spend more on electronics and upgrade more often than the average consumer, but as tech has grown more mainstream than ever, and with product cycles accelerated on the mobile market, electronic waste is becoming an equally expanding issue.

 

There is a lack of consensus as to whether the term (e-waste) should apply to resale, reuse, and refurbishing industries, or only to product that cannot be used for its intended purpose. Informal processing of electronic waste in developing countries may cause serious health and pollution problems, though these countries are also most likely to reuse and repair electronics.

All electronic scrap components may contain contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardants. Even in developed countries recycling and disposal of e-waste may involve significant risk to workers and communities and great care must be taken to avoid unsafe exposure in recycling operations and leaching of material such as heavy metals from landfills and incinerator ashes.

 

This infographic puts e-waste figures in perspective...

10 of the Best Sources for Infographic Inspiration

10 of the Best Sources for Infographic Inspiration | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
Information graphics or “infographics” are graphic visual representations of information, data, or knowledge.

Infographics help us absorb facts and figures in the most effective way possible. They come in extremely handy when you need to explain complex information, numbers or data rather quickly and effectively. One cool way to get inspired is to look at some of the best infographics out there.

Infographics are an excellent way to add humor or irreverence to tell a great story in short possible way. However, infographics can be pretty hard to design since you have to gather together a lot of information and make it look good. Today we're to sharing the top places to see some great visual graphics and also find inspiration to create your own...

Over 100 Incredible Infographic Tools and Resources

Over 100 Incredible Infographic Tools and Resources | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
I love a good infographic! After all, knowledge is power and the visualization of data makes absorbing information all the easier. Well-designed infographics have a way of pulling me into a subject I'd normally never care to know about.

As a designer I can attest to the crazy amount of time it takes to make a compelling, useful infographic. I have to say I knew about many of the great links, resources and tools I’ve linked to here on this post before but I dug deep and found some new and exciting infographic tools that I’m willing to bet you haven’t seen before. Items 1-5 under the Data Visualization Tools and Software category are sufficiently capable of arming even a novice designer with the ability to produce a powerful infographic (though I’m sure experts will find them handy as well). In short, if you love infographics, data visualization and information design as much as I do, you’re going to love this post...

Art, maps,imagery and graphs add context and a visual component to numbers, locations, and information.

With as much influx of data we contend with on a daily basis, visualization tools allows our brains to take a rest while perceiving content in a different light. In essence, visualization allows us to stop and smell the pixels, in spite of the fact we might learn a few things along the way.

Visualization is a technique to graphically represent sets of data that makes it easier to read and understand. Tools for visualization exist in search, social networks, online communities, mobile apps and desktop applications.

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom

7 Data Visualization Tools You Can Use In The Classroom | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it

No matter what happens, there will always be a demand for data visualization tools. Data on its own can be pretty boring and brightening it up with images and other visual tools, it can make normally inaccessible information much easier to digest. (Editor’s Note: It’s also great for information reading literacy, and the new Common Core demand for multimedia “texts.”)


There are a number of fantastic tools out there that will present your data in an accessible manner. All of the tools listed below are free and chances are you’ve used one or two of the tools mentioned before.

A Carefully Selected List of Recommended Tools

A Carefully Selected List of Recommended Tools | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
When I meet with people and talk about our work, I get asked a lot what technology we use to create interactive and dynamic data visualizations.

At Interactive Things, we have a set of preferred libraries, applications and services that we use regularly in our work. We will select the most fitting tool for the job depending on the requirements of the project. Sometimes a really simple tool is all you need to create something meaningful. On other occasions, a more multifaceted repertoire is needed. But how does one choose the right thing to use? An endless list of every tool available, does not answer that question and a recommendation from a friend is oftentimes more valuable.

That’s why we have put together a selection of tools that we use the most and that we enjoy working with. We called it selection.datavisualization.ch. It includes libraries for plotting data on maps, frameworks for creating charts, graphs and diagrams and tools to simplify the handling of data. Even if you’re not into programming, you’ll find applications that can be used without writing one single line of code. We will keep this list as a living repository and add / remove things as technology develops...

26 Interesting Infographics for Web Designers and Developers

26 Interesting Infographics for Web Designers and Developers | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly, and are easy to understand.

Infographics are sources of interesting information, when you are in need of some. Reading boring, long, colorless articles isn’t so attractive and interesting than reading and viewing facts and numbers in an illustrated way. Not only an illustrated way, but a very creative, attractive and super-appealing way.

All of them have been designed not only to look good, but also to expose the maximum information and data possible. These infographics were made by some very talented designers, with creative minds and superb skills.

While there are lots of really interesting and cool infographics on various topics, in this post we have only gathered awesome infographics which are of interest to web designers and developers...

Visual Storytelling: New Language for the Information Age

Visual Storytelling: New Language for the Information Age | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
We now live in a world where information is potentially unlimited. Information is cheap, but meaning is expensive.

Over the past several years, our quest to extract meaning from information has taken us more and more towards the realm of visual storytelling — we’ve used data visualization to reveal hidden patterns about the world, employed animation in engaging kids with important issues, and let infographics distill human emotion. In fact, our very brains are wired for the visual over the textual by way of the pictorial superiority effect.
