Visualization of key trends

It’s always enlightening to see a complex representation in a completely unexpected metaphor.

Columbus Futurist member Steve Seeskin shared at our June meeting an intriguing graphic developed by Richard Watson of the “What’s Next” site – key trends and events in a form that emulates the Periodic Table of Elements.  Check it out here.

The site contains an extensive collection of infographics, data visualizations and graphic metaphors.  A directory to the collection – which Watson calls “trend maps” – will capture your attention – count on it!

If you have some favorite sources of infographics and the like – please feel free to share them here.
