Remove the legend to become one — Remains of the Day
A good line graph is a fusion of right and left brain, of literacy and numeracy. Just numbers alone aren't enough to explain the truth, but accurate numbers, represented truthfully, are a check on our anecdotal excesses, confirmation biases, tribal affiliations.

Visualizing Algorithms
Algorithms are a fascinating use case for visualization. To visualize an algorithm, we don’t merely fit data to a chart; there is no primary dataset. Instead there are logical rules that describe behavior. This may be why algorithm visualizations are so unusual, as designers experiment with novel forms to better communicate. This is reason enough to study them.

Well, here we are at the end. I hope you enjoyed the tour. I endeavored to present a wide gamut—to illustrate the variety of roles that examples can serve, whether visual explanation, demonstration of capabilities, or idea conveniently packaged for reuse. Above all, I hope that you look for little gems in your work that you can share with others. I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Over the Decades, How States Have Shifted - Interactive Feature - NYTimes.com
Recent elections have placed a heavy emphasis on “swing states” — Ohio, Florida, and a handful of other states most-easily swayed from one party to the other. Yet in the past, many more states shifted between the Democratic and Republican parties. A look at how the states stack up in the current FiveThirtyEight forecast and how they have shifted over past elections.

Agreement Groups in the United States Senate
Being interested in social networks and communities, it was only natural to look at how those Senators were linked one to another and the natural community structure which emerged from their interactions. Thanks to GovTrack.us, we were able to construct for each session of the Senate an agreement graph between Senators.

Where Does The Money Go? by Stamen
In mid-2011, Esquire magazine challenged five designers, architects, and artists to recreate the map of America to reflect the state of the union in 2012. Stamen was one of them, and Esquire's instructions to us were simple: forget about all the tired and divisive ideas of red states and blue states, big states and small states, northern states and southern states, and instead design a new map that somehow reflects something that's happening in the country today.

What They Know - Mobile - WSJ
Marketers are tracking smartphone users through "apps" - games and other software on their phones. Some apps collect information including location, unique serial-number-like identifiers for the phone, and personal details such as age and sex. Apps routinely send the information to marketing companies that use it to compile dossiers on phone users. As part of the What They Know investigative series into data privacy, the Journal analyzed the data collected and shared by 101 popular apps on iPhone and Android phones (including the Journal's own iPhone app). This interactive database shows the behavior of these apps, and describes what each app told users about the information it gathered.

Congress Age Distribution - Infographic - The Wall Street Journal
The 111th Congress, which convened in 2009, is among the oldest in U.S. history. The average age of members of Congress has risen steadily since 1981, with just a slight hiccup in the early 1990s; the rise is likely the result of a high incumbency rate, the aging of the U.S. population, and the first-time elections of older candidates. Roll over the charts below to learn more.

The nation’s economic woes boil down to this. Compared with a healthy economy, about 7 million working-age people and 5 percent of the nation’s industrial capacity are sitting idle, not producing what they could. The economy is growing again, but at a rate — less than 2 percent in recent months — that’s too slow to keep up with a population that keeps increasing and workers who keep getting more efficient.
