Often times a picture is truly worth a thousand words; and I think this collection of environmental infographics is proof that’s true. This online collection has been created by the talented pool of designers at Visual.ly is a team of graphic designers who can be hired to make impactful infographics for any topic and the quality of their work is apparent. Several of my favorites are:
- Fish Pharm – which is a rather disturbing look at the amount of pharmaceuticals in the Chicago River
- The Life Cycle of a Leaf – which is a simple but powerful view of (well) the life and death of a leaf
- Green Machines? – which shows just how much power Americans consume
- Global Carbon Footprint – which is an eye opening view of the world’s biggest carbon polluters
Until my next edition of Free For All, happy hunting for free geospatial goodies!
