Hans Rosling again: “Let my dataset change your mind­set”. If only all sta­tis­tics lec­tur­ers were this dynamic!

David McCan­d­less: “The beauty of data visu­al­iza­tion”. Not so excit­ing as Hans, but some great exam­ples.

      Hans Rosling uses Gap­Min­der. I don’t know what David McCan­d­less uses.

    McCan­d­less uses Adobe Illus­tra­tor I think he said. For him it’s about mak­ing it pretty.
