We love infographics!


We are big fans of the Infographic here at ScHARR Towers- we even have a copy of the wonderful David McCandless' book 'Information is Beautiful' in the ScHARR Library (see him doing his thing at TED, above). There's been a load of work on this in recent years especially kicked on by the likes of Gapminder and Information is Beautiful, but it seems to be gaining massive momentum - so here's a few sites our very own Andy Tattersall has come across over the last few years. As Andy said this very morning "I hope these will spur you on to make their own infographics- perhaps it's only a matter of time before we see these regularly at conferences. If you search through these sites you will find dozens of health-related infographics."
Thanks Andy!
