19 Maps That Reorganize the Way We See the World

19 Maps That Reorganize the Way We See the World | visual data | Scoop.it

Most maps focus on demographics, geological makeup, and natural phenomena such as temperature and wind. No one focuses on other matters though, such as the alphabetic makeup of states when you sort their names in various ways. Break the names apart and put them back together. Examine the parts to gain a vision of the whole.

Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet

Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet | visual data | Scoop.it

Graphic designer Mark Gonyea, who previously explored a new way of counting, has a new project that gives the alphabet a mathematical reinterpretation. 

‘Letters by the Number’ takes the 26 letters of the alphabet and multiplies them according to their numeric placement. For example, ‘A’ is a single ‘A’ while ‘B’ is two ‘Bs’, and ‘Z’ is a series of 26 interconnected ‘Zs’. 
Gonyea adds visual oomph to the series by having each design correspond to a different color; red numbers can be squared, blue numbers can be divided by three, and orange numbers are multiples of five.
