Datavisualization.ch is an online calling card for a Zurich-based tech-and-design studio called Interactive Things. It’s as efficient as—and even more useful than—a Swiss watch.
The website collects a wide variety of infographics and data maps. Some are whimsical; others shed new light on the 24-hour news cycle. Earlier this month, we saw a visual representation of what the CFOs at several mid-market companies think about their futures. (Needless to say, these CFOs seemed overly optimistic.) Yesterday, the site took Google’s Ngram viewer—which allows us to search 5 million books, in almost as many ways—out for a spin. But the most useful feature so far has been a totally fascinating data set based on last month’s Wikileak of U.S. embassy cables.
