Pick up Stephen Few's 'Information Dashboard Design'.  I can't recommend it highly enough.

Hi team !
Please. As usual, this is the best place for such a question.

Sorry for the 'admirable and receptive' title! : )

That said! A suductive topic for those working with them... (dashboards).
Please forgive me.

I'm looking for the *best of best* and/or the most compeling / complexed / innovative /inspirational / creative demonstration in modern dashboards.
How do you handle "mass information" in a dashboard interface?

Thanks in advanced for your comments/feeback.

Thanks.
Got it - (Information Dashboard Design) - . Plus sourcing others from "Edward Tufte" as well.
Unfortunately it seems "Few's" and other such books have been out of print (at least in Canada).
Which I tend to put on "lack of financial desire for the big box stores"... what sells. Ironic, because here in Toronto, Canada have a big design / usability / engineering community. I guess Harry Potter sells more titles,
However, I plan to get what I can get from "Amazon used"...I plan to get the whole lot from both authurs....

Thanks a heep....great recco....

Here are some examples of dashboards more for inspiration/eye-candy (less practical):

Excellent dashboards following Edward Tufte's principles:

The key to handling massive amounts of information is to pritoritize how each pixel is being used: for data as much as possible, for grids as little and subtly as possible, and never for decoration.
