This Interactive Sochi Calendar Completely Reinvents How We Understand Scheduling

This Interactive Sochi Calendar Completely Reinvents How We Understand Scheduling | visual data | Scoop.it

Calendars are a fairly well-understood, unquestioned form of linear organization. Rarely is the format questioned or challenged, but once you see this new interactive circular calendar produced by creative agency Column Five and hosted by SportsInteraction, you’ll wonder how you ever thought you’d understand the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics without it.

The incredibly intuitive calendar sorts the Sochi events by sport and date. Each color represents a sport while each ring representing a day, all of which is completely interactive and has the events listed by an American time zone for our stateside convenience.

As the information becomes available, the calendar will have more country and competitor data listed, along with results being continuously updated.

Self explicit! The actual interactive visualization module cannot be accessed from sites in Greece, though, as it is hosted on a Games gambling site, blocked at least by our provider. Pitty.

Infographic: A Beautiful Calendar Designed Around 12 Different Types Of Measurement

Infographic: A Beautiful Calendar Designed Around 12 Different Types Of Measurement | visual data | Scoop.it

Calendars come in all sorts of forms, from the purely functional apps on our smartphones to the propped-up desktop ones that are mostly just a means of delivering a new Far Side joke every day. The Units of Measure Calendar Poster, as its name suggests, isn’t the most straightforward one to categorize. Or even one that’s easy to recognize as a calendar at all.


It doesn’t leave any room for you to jot down appointments, though it does include all 365 days, which you can notch off one by one. Mostly, it’s just an exquisite graphical compilation of 12 different units of measurement, a tightly packed collection of diagrams and conversion tables and other neat looking things of the sort.

Useful for thinking about measurement AND its limitations.  ~  D
