  • Infographics are growing in popularity because the complex systems we encounter (the economy, social metrics...need more examples) are producing enormous quantities of data, and visual representation is one way that allows us to find patterns in the noise that data generate. Complex systems share a number of qualities: namely, they are open systems (which means they interact with their environment), they have a large number of rich, dynamic, non-linear interactions, they generate emergent properties and feedback loops....and their meaning and boundaries emerge only through framing.1. A Working Brain Model (2007)This representation shows the connectivity of the 10,000 neurons and 30 million connections that make up a single neocortical column. (The different colors correspond to different levels of electrical activity.) Having created a biologically accurate computer model of a neocortical column scientists are now planning to model the entire human brain within just 10 years.” 2.

The lines that connect journals are the edges of the clickstream model.Project 1: BiologyA Working Brain Model (2007)Project 3: News and LegalVisualizing the Campaign Contributions to the 110th Congress - US House Edition (2009)Project 4: Science NetworksHigh-Resolution Maps of Science (2009)http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0004803
