Even better than a good chart is an infographic which allies data with creative presentation that seemingly extracts even more value from the data. I wrote about infographics on the scale of national indebtedness a while back, and the creative data visualisation of American-based company – Demonocracy.
It seems that there’s a UK business that’s good at data visualisation – it’s NeoMam Studios in Manchester. Their work has a clarity, intelligence, and subtle design ethic. Their recent infographic [click on image to link to the infographic] on A Traveller’s Guide to Tap Water is a humdinger – not only does it give the data on tap water safety, it also gives advice on how to make tap water safe.
