Layout | Feltron Report 2011-2011

Nicholas Felton has released his annual Feltron report. This report covers both 2010 and 2011, as the 2010 Feltron report was a chronicle of the life of Nicholas’ father. As usual the report is expertly crafted and presented. The focus is specifically on the locations he visited over the two year period.

Layout | Rugby World Cup 2011 round one

Now that the first weekend of action is complete for the Rugby World Cup, I thought that I would update my two score sheets and repost, one a calendar, the other an atlas. Click on the images below to get full resolution PDFs.

Graph | Scientific Collaboration Map

Inspired by the Facebook friends map, research analyst Olivier Beauchnesne created the scientific collaboration map. The map shows the reserach connections between different universities using an extensive academic citation database frm 2005 to 2009.

The result shows a very large amount of collaboration in Europe and in the US, but little elsewhere. This is probably due to the dataset.

Layout | Feltron 2010 Annual Report

It is time again for the excellent Feltron Report, now up to it’s sixth edition. For those that do not know, the annual Feltron Report is a brilliant collection of infographics by Nicholas Felton usually about what he got up to during the year.

The 2010 report is slightly different, in that it is about his Father’s life, and all the resources he could find to report on his life.

As usual the graphics are top notch, and the typography is excellent.

Layout | Typefaces of the World poster

The Typefaces of the World poster is a very pretty poster, highlighting the origin of 50 popular typefaces alphabetically, and listing the date and author.

The idea is to familiarise designers with the origin of the type, so as to be able to better use the different faces. I think a timeline element would add to this, maybe by lengthening the line accordingly.

Graph | Facebook map versus the rest of the world

 

Further to yesterday’s post showing the Facebook friend map, here is Thorsten Gaetz take. He created a map of the inhabited world, by plotting in red wherever the population density was higher than 2 people per square mile. Over this map he laid a grey scale version of the Facebook map. What you get it both the Facebook map, and a map of places that either have facebook blocked, or other social media is more popular.

Graph | Facebook friendship links

Great looking map which plots the location of a sample Facebook friends across the earth, clearly showing the map of the world, and how interconnected it is.

There is also an interesting commentary on how this was created.

Layout | Wikileaks US Embassy Cables mapped

As usual, the Guardian has some beautiful graphics for the Wikileaks Cables. Their map of locations is easily nicer and easier to read than the similar maps from El Pais and Der Spiegel. Though I do like the touch on Der Spiegel which shows links between embassies to show where the cables refer to.
