A growing interest of mine is the utility of infographics in research and knowledge dissemination.
Like a well-designed powerpoint presentation or figure in a published paper, the goal of an infographic is to visually and concisely communicate a wealth of information.
Infographics I find particularly effective and/or useful:
Charles Minard’s inforgraphic representation of Napoleon’s 1812 Russian campaign.
