7 Visualization Groups On Flickr to Find Inspiration

Posted to Visualization  |  Nathan Yau

I’ve always thought of Flickr as a place where I can share my photos with friends and family; however, I’m starting to see there’s a whole lot more than that. It’s a great place to find inspiration for infographics and visualizations or to just browse the giganto collection of work from others.

Here are some awesome data-related Flickr groups that are worth a look.

fd-iconNaturally, I started a group for FlowingData too. Be sure to join and then send your stuff to the FlowingData group pool, especially if you’d like to get your stuff featured here. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one. [link]
