We usually don’t use this space to talk about new websites but this one seemed interesting and relevant enough to include in this post. Andy Cotgreave‘s Tumblr blog 100yrs of Data Visualisation best practice was launched to celebrate the centenary of Willard C Brinto‘s book, Graphic methods for presenting facts (1914). One hundred years after, many of the principles and insights are as contemporary as they can be, so congratulations to Andy for this great initiative. Follow the conversation on Twitter with #100yrsOfBrinton.
As far as the interactive visualizations, today’s opening pick was, in fact, already featured here on Visualoop. The Big Picture, a visual exploration of the reciprocal image of Italy and China observed through the lens of Digital Methods, is Giulio Fagiolini‘s M.Sc Thesis for the Master in Communication Design at Politecnico di Milano. The project has been carried out under the supervision of professor Paolo Ciuccarelli and the co-supervision of Yang Lei, Curator and Exhibition Director at China Millennium Monument Museum of Digital Art of Beijing. Overall, another great example of the high quality work being developed by both students and teachers at Density Design.
