2012 has certainly been an eventful year, with everything from elections, to olympics, to scientific breakthroughs, to major weather events. To help review some of the things that happened, here are 20 of the best static infographics from the year. 1. There were several space related events this year. NASA’s Curiosity rover landed on mars, and successfully began collecting data.
Advertisement Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive. There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data – tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. However, to convey a message to your readers effectively, sometimes you need more than just a simple pie chart of your results.
Visual tools for the socio–semantic web This thesis contributes to a new discipline of science: web science, as introduced by Tim Berners-Lee and others in 2006. Designers, computer scientists, sociologists, cognitive scientists, psychologists etc. have individual perspectives on the complex and rapidly evolving interplay of technological and social infrastructure and human society. However, a well-defined discipline — unifying the scientific analysis of social and human factors to understand, but also to shape and steer web developments by informed design and engineering —is not established yet. moritz.stefaner.eu - M.A. Thesis
How we work Work When working on traditional commissions, we give advice and support to our agency customers from the conception to the implementation of their projects. Depending on the task’s requirements, we use generative and/or classical design methods efficiently and sensibly.
My name is Moritz Stefaner. I am interested in information aesthetics, interactive visualization, and how the web transforms our understanding of information. Featured projects Elsewhere Occasionally, I blog about visualization and my work at Listen to me and Enrico Bertini and our guests:
In a rooted phylogenetic tree, each node with descendants represents the inferred most recent common ancestor of the descendants, and the edge lengths in some trees may be interpreted as time estimates. Each node is called a taxonomic unit. Internal nodes are generally called hypothetical taxonomic units, as they cannot be directly observed.
A tree structure showing the possible hierarchical organization of an encyclopedia. The original Encyclopédie used a tree diagram to show the way in which its subjects were ordered. A tree structure is a way of representing the hierarchical nature of a structure in a graphical form. Tree structure

What Are the Benefits of Graphic Organizers in Elementary Language Arts? Graphic organizers take advantage of how students learn. First, the visual presentation reduces demands on working memory as well as keeping the material concrete. For example, a KWL (Know, Want to Know, have Learned) chart can help students remember their reading purpose and keep track of what they learn. Also, a graphic organizer's big-picture view shows the structure and relationships of ideas or words, ranging from a simple, non-hierarchical web to a continuum scale showing a range such as less/more. Students can easily see main ideas and are more likely to remember the concepts.

Circular visualization Circos is a software package for visualizing data and information. It visualizes data in a circular layout — this makes Circos ideal for exploring relationships between objects or positions. There are other reasons why a circular layout is advantageous, not the least being the fact that it is attractive.

Barack Obama and Mitt Romney will be face-to-face again on TV for their second debate. A debate, bi its nature, shouldn't be a subject easy to visualize, but day after the day, media gets to publish great graphics, in a record time, about what is said on these spaces. These are some examples of graphics on this topic, new and old.

Information design is the practice of presenting information in a way that fosters efficient and effective understanding of it. The term has come to be used specifically for graphic design for displaying information effectively, rather than just attractively or for artistic expression. Information design is closely related to the field of data visualization and is often taught as part of graphic design courses. Etymology
