Data Visualization Inspiration

I’m a bit of a data visualization and infographic junkie, so I visit quite a few data viz blogs on a regular basis. I decided to compile a list of my 12 favorite sites to share with everyone, and hopefully some CMYBacon readers will tip me off to some new ones too. This list is mostly made up of blogs, but there are a few non-blogs in the mix too. So without further ado, here are my favorites:

1. Information Aesthetics


2. GOOD: Infographics


3. Flowing Data


4. Feltron


5. Info Graphics – Flickr group


6. Guardian’s Data Blog


7. Chart Porn


8. Pop Chart Lab


9. Information is Beautiful


10. Edward Tufte: Ask ET


11. Cool Infographics


12. Neoformix


So there you have it…my 12 favorite data visualization sites. One glaring omission you might have noticed is The New York Times. They have some amazing infographics on their site, however there isn’t a central page for all their charts (like the Guardian’s Data Blog) so that’s why I left it off the list. Are there any other sites that deserve being mentioned? Post a link in the comments section below.
