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.
“Charts, graphs, facts – anything that is about information or visualising information” [link]
maps and charts
“If you have some interesting Map or Chart images to add to this group please do so… with that being said, not all maps and charts are pretty, and I intend on being pretty hardcore about what sits in the pool…” [link]
“Lovely, delicious data porn.” [link]
“Diagrams are interesting representations of reality and data.” [link]
Cool Data Visualization Techniques
“Coolness, aesthetics and efficacy of visual representation methods.” [link]
Naturally, 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]
