Hans Rosling And Data Visualization.

Bruce Nussbaum

In the first issue of IN, we pointed to Gapminder and the great data visualization software developed by Hans Rosling. Check out Rosling's presentation at the TED conference on the TED site. Rosling is amazing in using information design to show changes in health and economic growth in developing countries--and in refuting conventional wisdom. I couldn't stop watching--and wonderful how useful this software may be in presenting all kinds of information in a dynamic manner.
