Data Is Beautiful (20 Photos)

Data is beautiful if you take the time to put it all together correctly. Sometimes, it adds up to something pretty. Numbers are for nerds! I like my information visual. That’s why I watch the news. I want to see a video clip of the thing I should be angry about today. Don’t make me read! That’s what Twitter is for. And my stack of erotic paranormal romance novels.

Frankly, I’m a dumb person. I blame myself. I know more about a map in Super Metroid than any map of the Earth. That’s why I’m happy people on Reddit gave me data that is digestible and fun to read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Here are the best examples of maps and graphs that became pieces of art simply by crunching some numbers:


1. Each compromised Facebook account compared with the population of large countries.
