7B people & you: What's your number? Sources: All population data are based on estimates by the UN Population Division and all calculations provided by the UN Population Fund. The remaining data are from other sections of the UN, the Global Footprint Network and the International Telecommunications Union. Want to find out more? Visit the UN Population Fund's detailed population calculator, 7 billion and me. Notes on the data: Only birth dates after 1910 can be accommodated and only countries with populations of more than 100,000 people are included. Three country groupings - developed, developing and least developed - featured in the conclusions are those referenced by the UN for assessing the Millennium Development Goals.

How Wine Became Metropolitan: An Interview with David Gissen IMAGE: The Metro Wine Map of France, designed by David Gissen. David Gissen is usually known as an architectural theorist whose publications (including a blog, and Subnature, a book I highly recommend) explore peripheral, denigrated, or otherwise overlooked aspects of urban nature — puddles, smog, and weeds — in order to re-imagine the relationship between buildings, cities, and the environment. IMAGE: “Reconstruction of Midtown Manhattan c.1975,” and “Urban Ice Core/Indoor Air Archive,” two speculative proposals by David Gissen that reconstruct New York City as the world centre for intense indoor air-production and consider how that atmosphere might be archived. In Gissen’s own projects, he proposes a new kind of architectural preservation and reconstruction that engages with the intangibles of the urban environment. IMAGE: From “Museums of the City” by David Gissen, project rendered by Victor Hadjikyriacou. IMAGE: The 2009 Morgon by Marcel Lapierre, photo via. Gissen: Exactly.
How Did We Get to 7 Billion People So Fast? I love the cool infographic video from NPR. 7 Billion: How Did We Get So Big So Fast? is a video that uses colored liquids to visualize the population rates of the differen continents. High birth rates mean fast liquid pouring in, slower death rates slow down the liquid dripping out of the bottom. The U.N. estimates that the world’s population will pass the 7 billion mark on Monday. Found on FlowingData

Money Chart The 22 Best Infographics We Found In 2011 | Co.Design 2011 was a huge year for infographic design. Large companies embraced data renderings as a business strategy like never before, whether it was to promote their brand (GE) or bolster their bottom line (the New York Times). Nowhere was that more evident than at Facebook. Timeline, the site’s most ambitious redesign to date, brought the central tenet of data viz--organizing unwieldy bits and bobs into a compelling, visual narrative--to millions of people around the world. As infographics go mainstream, infographic designers grow bolder. We can’t wait to see where the discipline goes next.

Water & Sanitation | UNICEF USA Clean water saves lives. Water is life. When water is unsafe and sanitation non-existent, water can kill. Globally, waterborne illnesses are a leading cause of death for children under five, killing nearly 1,000 children every day. UNICEF works in more than 100 countries to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities. Whether by restoring access to clean water after a disaster or promoting safe hygiene practices in schools and communities, UNICEF is on the ground helping children in need. Since 1990, thanks to the work of UNICEF and its partners, some 2.6 billion people have gained access to clean drinking water.
Walmart Dwarfs Entire Industries And Nations Walmart is always good for destroying your faith in humanity on Black Friday, and this year was no exception: By day’s end, reports emerged from stores across the country of biblical struggles over waffle makers, pepper-spraying, and even at least one shooting. Maybe if shoppers took a closer look at Walmart’s business doings they wouldn’t be so willing to whip out legal airborne torture for a bargain Xbox. Or maybe they would, I don’t know. The superpower analogy might sound like a rhetorical device, but Walmart really does resemble a nation (albeit a miserly dictatorship where no one would ever want to live). Walmart has something else in common with certain nations: astronomical income inequality.
60+ Beautiful Examples of Well-Designed Infographics | DJDESIGNERLAB - Find All Your Design Inspirations From This Laboratory Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly, such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education. With an information graphic, computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians develop and communicate concepts using a single symbol to process information. Today information graphics surround us in the media, in published works both pedestrian and scientific, in road signs and manuals. They illustrate information that would be unwieldy in text form, and act as a visual shorthand for everyday concepts such as “stop” and “go”.

Dencity Dencity maps population density using circles of various size and hue. Larger, darker circles show areas with fewer people, while smaller, brighter circles highlight crowded cities. Representing denser areas with smaller circles results in additional geographic detail where there are more people, while sparsely populated areas are more vaguely defined. Read more about how Dencity was made.

Infographic Of The Day: Cellphone Calls Reveal The United States's Invisible Ties | Co.Design The lines between states and even countries are pretty arbitrary: The ties you have with people 50 miles away aren't going to be too-much affected by some imaginary line drawn up 200 years ago. What if you could remap the United States -- not by geography, but rather social ties? MIT's Senseable City Lab has done just that, by analyzing mobile-phone calling patterns across the country. By looking at calls between cellphones, they've revealed states and cities that are closely connected -- and similarly, regions which aren't nearly as closely connected as you'd think. Here's their main result, color-coded by regional affiliation: You see all sorts of super-states emerge: Arizona and New Mexico are closely bound, as are Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia, The Carolinas, Louisiana and Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, New York and New Jersey, and all of the New England states. With the biggest states, it's something different.
