Interessant Infographics, that not only show us things in a new way, but we turn to check new things, too.

Top 10 Video Infographics of 2012

Top 10 Video Infographics of 2012 | visual data | Scoop.it

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 [videoinfographics.net], 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 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012

The 16 Most Compelling Infographics Of 2012 | visual data | 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!

Google Maps shows how we spent summer 2012

Google Maps shows how we spent summer 2012 | visual data | Scoop.it

Before we approach the official end of summer on September 21, our Google Maps team thought it’d be fun to see how those of us in the Northern Hemisphere have spent the dog days. To do this, we reviewed the summer search activity on maps.google.com in several countries between the end of May and the beginning of September. Within each country, a look at some of the top-rising searches and the often-searched landmarks on Google Maps gives us a sense of how people around the world spent their summers.

An infographic explores the state of infographics

An infographic explores the state of infographics | visual data | Scoop.it

It turns out 2012 was a huge year for the infographic—internet culture likes its data presented with charming representative imagery. 


Business, technology, and social media comprised the most popular topics for this exploding medium, according to data, Singapore searched the term “infographic” more than any other global city. 
The year’s most popular infographic was “What Are the Odds,” which explores how improbable it is that you (or this infographic, for that matter) came into existence in the first place...

Is the younger generation becoming more visual and less dependent on words? Or is "a picture worth a thousand words" just a faster way to communicate?

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

The Intersection of Geography & Data: 2012's Best Maps | visual data | Scoop.it

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.

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic]

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic] | visual data | Scoop.it
This infographic visualizes the spectacular rise of the Internet in the last 10 years and how some companies have failed to adapt to the changes.

Here’s an interesting infographic that has been making the rounds across social media for the last two weeks. It visualizes the spectacular rise of the Internet in just 10 years. In 2002, the Internet boasted 569 million users, which translated to 9.1% of the world’s population. In 2012, that number has gone through the roof: There are now 2.27 billion users, or 33% of the world’s population.

Another formidable stat is the amount of time people spend online — in 2002, it was only 46 minutes a day (about the time it took to download four songs); in 2012, it’s four hours a day.
