Introduction to Circos, Features and Uses // CIRCOS Circular Genome Data Visualization
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. Circos is ideal for creating publication-quality infographics and illustrations with a high data-to-ink ratio, richly layered data and pleasant symmetries. You have fine control each element in the figure to tailor its focus points and detail to your audience.

Visual Map Of The Internet And Websites' Connectedness This is actually a worthwhile little time waster. Internet-map.net is a website that depicts websites as different sized circles based on the size of their audience, and their relatedness to one another based on their proximity on the map. It has a handy search feature too, so you don't have to go scrolling around to find the site you're looking for. Because otherwise it would be complete shit. Google translation from Russian:

Dancing with Data « Quasipartikel Last Sunday I gave a small workshop at the MapBox office, where I showed new findings I’ve discovered while working on my last visualization project. We turned a collection of countries into a dance of dots, each dot referring to a country in the collection. In other words: We created a simple animated Scatterplot. The goal was to implement a data-driven visualization where the output image is determined by the data and visualization state, such as filters and selected variables. Once users modify either the state or the data, the visualization gets updated accordingly using smooth transitions between states. We applied fundamental concepts such as Data Joins (a technique introduced by D3.js), Scales and Animation.
