One of the things I’m wanting to do with this blog is look for ways to express information about Swine Flu with clarity. Hence the graphs, and the straying into other visuals from time to time.
If that is your thing, then you might want to look at two other Australian sites that attempt to visualise data in interesting ways:
- More Heat than Light is a new blog about climate change: it’s using visualisation to cut through the mounds of data in this field. Some of the graphs and pictures this guy is finding are just great.
- Pollytics is the best blog around for Australian politics: run by a guy who knows his stats and knows his politics and brings both together in an insightful and entertaining way. (If you’re an Australian reader, you probably know Possum already. But if you’re international – go and have a look, even if you don’t know anything about Aussie politics – this blog does great things with graphs and polls and data).
I’ve included links to both these blogs on the side bar.
