14 Fantastic Examples of Complex Data Visualized

By 2015, the global annual rate of data production is expected to reach 5.6 zettabytes, double the rate of growth in 2012, according to IDC.

That’s a lot of information to digest, especially in black-and-white typeface or an unattractive, 50-page PDF. Visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text which makes it much easier for people to understand the significance of data.

Patterns, trends and correlations that might go undetected in text-based data can be exposed and recognized easier with data visualizations.

But regardless of the fact that,, complex data visualizations can still be confusing.

In this post, we’re going to break down 14 fantastic examples of complex data visualized. Below are two examples (click on picture to see better resolution):

Actually, on the Bloomberg "Billionaires", I'd like two additional data points (wealth inherited/created) and if inherited, which "generation" from the foundation it is.  E.g., Carnegie and Hershey both created quite large endowments, one built libraries (but did not fund their continuation) and the other funded a school.  Bill Gates, while generally portrayed as a college dropout, the son of a founding member of a law firm, could be said to have parental wealth support, despite his own success in making more money than his father.
