At the risk of repeating myself from my other blog...... I would like to say that Gapminder are my most favourite people when it comes to information graphics. They did to graphs what McVities did to biscuits...... (chocolate hobnobs, need I say more?)

If you didn't get a chance to check out the interactive graphs, please do.

You can also watch a program he did with the BBC called "The Joy of Stats" on his website.


Some great maps over at Worldmapper covering all different categories, transport, food, poverty, etc. This project is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield and University of Michigan.

This pdf to the left is about Forest Loss from 1990 to 2000, totalling 1,330,007 square kilometres.

It's interesting to see where the loss is most extreme. South America and Africa.

Great how they collect this information and then it's out there for all to see. Love it.


The information graphic that started it all

I started blogging over at my other blog 18 months ago and this was one of my first posts. I have decided to repeat it here as it conveys what it is I want to do.

In a simple form, it tells of how children's lives have changed over the past four generations.

I have, for a long while, been a lover of all things related to information and graphics. My hope is that the revolution we are seeing online with regards to visuals/transparencies/data visualization and such will roll over into Landscape Architecture and inform and influence all.

So, while I would like to think of myself, like many others, as an information architect, I hope when I grow up I can be an information landscape architect as well.
