Visualization of Visualizations

Stuart Mitchell, a buddy from my New Zealand year (and I hope soon a coauthor), passed along a neat “Periodic Table of Visualization Methods” from visual-literacy.org.  If you mouse over each box, you get a quick picture of a particular type of visualization.  Given my own biases, I am very taken with the “information visualizations” and less so with the “compound visualizations” (which look like USA Today‘s “graphics” gone mad).  There are a lot more ways to visualize things, but it is neat to see this collection.
