Infographics - Your Data, Visualized - Visual.ly

The new field of infographics is new and expanding rapidly not only in scientific fields from whence it emerged but in communications generally. Below is a quick definition from the Wikipaedia entry for infographics. The entry is detailed and offers a good background on the field.

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly,[1] such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education. With an information graphic, computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians develop and communicate concepts using a single symbol to process information.

Visual.ly is probably the most interesting on-line site. It actually does what it says it does
