How complex ideas can be communicated via graphics “If you can’t explain it simply you don’t understand it well enough” Albert Einstein Our everyday lives are filled with a massive flow of information that we must interpret in order to understand the world we live in Considering this complex variety of data floating around us sometimes the best or even only way to communicate is visually This uniue book presents a fascinating historical perspective on the subject highlighting the work of the masters of the profession who have created a number of breakthroughs that have changed the way we communicate Information Graph. In the beginning this books seems just another huge coffee table book that contains visual information in various languages thus hard to understand But after reading it in depth it is clear that the book focuses on the way the information is presented and not on the information itself And for any person who is involved in presentations or research it is uite useful

Information Graphics

Presenting 200 graphics projects with over 400 examples each with a fact sheet and an explanation of methods and objectives divided into chapters by the subjects Location Time Category and HierarchyFeatures200 projects and over 400 examples of contemporary information graphics from all over the world ranging from journalism to art government education business and much Historical essays about the development of information graphics since its beginnings Exclusive poster 673 x 475 mm 265 x 187 in by Nigel Homes who during his 20 years as graphics director for TIME revolutionized the way the magazine used information graphics. This is physically the largest book I own and I managed to get it home from LA in my carry on baggage somehow Probably the most thoughtful part of this book is the initial mini book that is slightly inset in the first 96 pages It is a historical view of information graphics from their origin through the 20th century The book is an example of its subject being information and graphics It is inspirational in that it can be opened randomly for a new hint into visualizing numbers and making meaningful emphasis out of large data sets But it can also be used systematically to identify the type of data that must be presented and solutions for its presentation the sections are divided into graphics which best show data based on Location Time Hierarchy and Category respectively Of course this is a book and so animated or interactive infographics can t be easily shown however I ve found that if you can t get your meaning across in a static infographic at least as a storyboard or infographic you are not going to benefit a user by making them play with your interactive interface Anyways there is a reason that the pioneer and voyager space probes have infographics written on them as their first means of communication with any alien intelligence that may find them and this is certainly a universal language which it is worth being literate in As with any language it is harder to create simplicity that it first seems and this book is a great support to lean up against in the first few minutes of planning your next bar chart or 9 dimensional genetic map of Canadian immigration patterns
