Many of us in the network have to present complicated issues in a striking way visually. Here are a few of my favourite sites providing ideas and practical tools for presenting complex social issues. This is a field that is advancing very rapidly – so updates would be welcome..
An excellent site with many examples is http://www.visualcomplexity.com/vc/ which also connects to a blog.
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2007/08/02/data-visualization-modern-app... is another collection, full of fascinating and beautiful examples.
A similar collection aimed at advocacy and argument is http://www.tacticaltech.org/infodesign.
Others include: the now famous Hans Rosling and www.gapfinder.org which has been bought by Google and is the liveliest example of animated data.
I also like: the complexity maps group working on local mapping - www.complexitymaps.net; www.socialwatch.org – for showing social data on inequality etc; www.wiserearth.org – for a more grassroots use of Googlemaps, and http://www.softhook.com/ Christian Nold’s site for public participation in representation.
It'd be good to have other ideas and examples.
