If you like numbers and charts and stuff, you’re going to love FredBlog! [fredblog]
.. and GeoFRED!
FRED Blog is new charts every day, drawn against the FRED database, with explanation of how they were constructed and an opportunity to customize them. It is a mini masterclass in representing data.
GeoFred [GeoFRED] is the same sort of thing, but with lovely geographic data to index against:
The maps are all dynamic and the interface is beautifully designed. Click on a region and it’ll show you a pop up of the different data sets FRED has for it.
You can sign up for an email newsletter and get this kind of data-rich goodness in your in-box automatically.
The chart above took me more time to animate in photoshop (I just did two renderings of the data, overlaid them, and did a blur transition in imageready)
