Junk Charts
Reader and tipster Chris P. found this "death spiral" chart dizzying (link). It's one of those charts that has conceptual appeal but does not do the data justice.

Data Visualisation ou l’art de se faire comprendre De nos jours il faut comprendre et se faire comprendre vite et bien. Une bonne présentation, un bon article ou bien un bon poster se distingue non seulement par un contenu pertinent mais aussi par des illustrations efficaces.

Why Census matters to you Census is any country is important in making major policy decisions and can affect your day-to-day, but it's not always obvious how. Leading up to the August 9 Australia Census, the Australian Bureau of Statistics put together an interactive called Spotlight, which helps its citizens understand the data a little better. Spotlight takes some of the data from the last Census - conducted in 2006 - and turns it into a simple interactive movie, to show just a few of the interesting things that the Census can tell us about Australia's people and population. As you go through the interactive, it asks you little bits about you such as gender and where you live, and then tells you information about what Census says about you and what's around. It also zooms out to put things in perspective. The voice-over helps to make it extra playful.

Our fondness for sharing memes and beautiful images isn't accidental but rather natural and has been explained by many scientific publications.

How To Think Visually Using Visual Analogies - Infographic - Adioma Visual learners are people who think in pictures[1] and use words to communicate that picture to others. About 60%[2] of the world population are visual learners. (I am one of them and I am guessing that since you are reading this article, you are one, too.
