TED Talks: The beauty of data visualization – David McCandless

Still stranded in the snow and looking for something to do, then why not look back on David McCandless’ great TED-Ed talk “The beauty of data visualization.”

McCandless turns complex data sets, like worldwide military spending, media buzz, and Facebook status updates, into beautiful, simple diagrams that tease out unseen patterns and connections.

Good design, he suggests, is the best way to navigate information glut — and it may just change the way we see the world.
