InfoVis – Cities, Satellites, Suns, Temperature and… Tennis

This is going to be my last post of this kind featuring a random selection of information visualisation and infographics.

I have been choosing items to post on the basis of whether they looked good or the data they showed was interesting. While on a personal level I am interested in all sorts of random pieces of knowledge, on professional level what I am interested is the way in which the information is presented, espcially interactively.

From now on I am going to post only interactive infovis. That is, information visualisation, hopefully innovative, not just some well designed (or in some cases not) graphic.

But before I do that I thought I would still post the final pieces of generic infovis that I had bookmarked
