The Best Data Visualization Projects of 2011
I almost didn't make a best-of list this year, but as I clicked through the year's post, it was hard not to. If last year (and maybe the year before) was the year of the gigantic graphic, this was the year of big data. Or maybe we've gotten better at filtering to the good stuff. (Fancy that.) In any case, data graphics continue to thrive and designers are putting more thought into what the data are about, and that's a very good thing. So here are my favorites from 2011, ordered by preference. 1. While creator Mike Bostock made the initial commit to GitHub in late 2010, D3 hit its stride in 2011. 2. Who knew carrying around a stick that detects WiFi vertically could be so informative? 3. Media artist Roger Luke DuBois used online dating data to show the uniqueness of cities in America. 4. From Bloom, Planetary is an iPad app that visualizes your iTunes music as a solar system, bringing your data into a more playful and exploratory context. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.
