This Beautiful Map Traces 275 Years Of Data Viz

By Jesus Diaz

This interactive website covering three centuries of infographic history will make the Edward Tufte in you very happy.

Behold a map of the birth of modern infographics, for it will cause in you a profound, Tuftean joy. Following a static poster he created earlier this year, RJ Andrews created this magnificent interactive based on John Ogilby’s 1675 road atlas of Britain, borrowing the same route-based design to chart the early history of data design.
