Information has become easier to digest than ever before. Web and graphics designers have jumped onto the growing trend of infographics, where particular information is portrayed in charts and diagrams for easy consumption.
The year 2011 has seen some impressive collections of data and information. The transparency(or non-transparency) of government, energy usage, Internet connectivity, worldwide hunger, and a slew of other statistics should give you an idea behind how infographics are put together. Below are 25 of my personal favorites from 2011 focusing on a range of datasets. If you know of other graphics or just want to share your thoughts you can post in the comments area below.
