Data Visualization Blogs You Might Not Know About

Apr 15, 2008

We all know about information aesthetics, but what other visualization blogs are out there? While writing for FlowingData I’ve come across some good ones as people send me links (hint) or that I’ve just randomly found. Here are some of the visualization (and mapping) blogs that I enjoy.

  • Strange Maps – Lots of unique maps from ads, books, papers, etc with very informed commentary.
  • Well-formed Data – Moritz is interested in interface design, visualization, statistics and data mining and is a freelance visualizer.
  • Random Etc. – Tom occasionally updates his blog with thoughts, resources, and, well, random etc.
  • Serial Consign – Greg talks about design and research with some visualization mixed in.
  • AnyGeo – Covers everything geospatial, although I do wish Glenn would switch to full feeds.

What are some of your favorites that others might not know about?
