Data Visualisation Blogs You Might Not Know About

A quick thanks to Nathan Yau for the plug over at Flowing Data...

I tried to add a comment there with some blogs I subscribe to (some already mentioned, some not) but I suspect the spam filter thought I was nuts to try posting 20 links. So here are a few other blogs/feeds you might like, if you like Flowing Data and came here from there:

My colleagues Mike, Eric and Shawn might also blog about info-viz from time to time, at least as relevantly as I do.

And del.icio.us, as ever, is indispensable for finding infoviz blogs.

Who have I missed? Let me know in the comments!

Tom,

Thanks for the list! I was only aware of a handful of these. I’ll definitely add them to my personal infovis feeds.

The site is at-times subject specific, but The Arbitrarian (http://arbitrarian.wordpress.com) often has interesting original visualization work.

Howdy!

That’s a great list.

People interested in how to actually design good diagrams and visualization might enjoy reading my master’s thesis and the rest of my blog at http://ComplexDiagrams.com

Note that I talk about all sorts of interface and interaction design there. The thesis itself is the very first blog entry.

Cheers, Noah
