There are some references that made me think about graphic presentation of
complex data.

Stamen Design it's around since 2001 and have a success history in data
visualisation along with Digg and other clients:

In 2004 was released a book called "Total Interaction" from Magnus Rembold
and Jürgen Späth* *professors in University of Applied Sciences and Arts in
Zürich, Switzerland:

TED presented in 2006 a marvelous talk about "Debunking third-world myths
with the best stats you've ever seen" where Swedish professor Hans Rosling
give us a lesson:

Anyone knows more reference of this kind of work around ?
I think it's fascinating.

hi Pedro, here's two of my favourite visualisation resources, btw thanks for the Ted talk link... hadnt seen that one before, thank you!

VisualComplexity.com intends to be a unified resource space for anyone interested in the visualization of complex networks. The project's main goal is to leverage a critical understanding of different visualization methods, across a series of disciplines, as diverse as Biology, Social Networks or the World Wide Web.

Many Eyes is the output of the Visual Communication Lab who embarked on a project to encourage sharing and conversation around visualizations. They believe that visualizations gain power when multiple people use them to communicate, and that communication gains power when multiple people can visualize and explore information together. They want to democratize visualization, enabling anyone on the internet to publish powerful interactive visualizations and start their own data conversations.
