We have written about data visualisations several times before on Just One Thing. So it's only apt that I introduce you to the definitive resource for the subject on the internet.
Information Is Beautiful is a website that showcases a variety of data visualisations and infographics. The project aims to turn complex data sets, such as statistics or other numeric information, into intuitive, easy-to-understand visual representations. And, in doing so, make information more accessible and engaging to the general public.
The visualizations cover various topics, from science and technology to culture and history. For those interested in the power of data visualisation or the beautiful ways in which data can be represented, Information Is Beautiful is a must-visit resource.

Go ahead. Have fun exploring. Seeya next time.
