A few successes …

I don’t  (want to) buy the idea that it’s too hard to quantify/demonstrate impact of visualization. Yet I want more evidence/stories.

He is my very humble initial step (form your comments and twitter messages):

  • Persuasive graphics in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth
  • Hans Rosling’s explanation of world development with Gapminder
  • Florence Nightingdale’s Mortality Diagram
  • John Snow’s Cholera Map
  • Tableau having a $127M revenue in 2012 and going public
  • >50k downloads of ggplot2 in the last 4 months
  • Better diagnosis for hearth disease

What else? Please send me more!
