And among the hundreds that have made the cut, several have stood out. Some are remarkable simply for their design; others because of what they say about the world we live in. And still others are notable because they point to trends in how data will soon inform, enhance and impact our lives.

Perú21 Ce que votre projection favorite dit de vous Cela vient de l’excellent Webcomic xkcd (merci Arthur). C’est en anglais, c’est vraiment drôle et très intelligent.

Using data gleaned from the 2010 U.S. Census, Dustin Cable at the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service has created what might be the most comprehensive color-coded map of racial segregation in America.

For the purposes of his map, Cable chose blue dots to represent white people, green dots for African-Americans, red dots for Asians and orange dots for Latinos.
