7. information design


last two theoric lessons were about how informations can be visually represented.

this is like the sum of all the theory: typography, visual grammar and colour are used to visualize data in infographics.

information can be organized with LATCH method (by Richard Saul Wurman).

Location is generally used to represent data on a map, or for the visualization of a system or body parts.

Alphabet is used to handle a large number of data.
Time is used to draw comparisons and conclusion on a timeline
Cathegory is grouping data by similar importance, using colour or placement.
Hierarchy is give a value or a weight on information, usually on a scale.
this is our big timeline!

here is an interesting infographic made by visitors of a Royal Geographical Society photography exposition. I really like the collective contribute to create this simple but genial map.
