The power of infographics: 200 years of progress

Jump to Comments

Here’s a fascinating example of animated infographics. It’s a powerful visual representation in a few minutes of a complex and controversial story – the idea that, contrary to much of the media’s narrative about life in the modern world, things have gone quite well, all in all.

Uncovering, understanding and representing data such as this (whether or not it tells the same story) will be a key task for journalism in future.
