In this post, I highlight web resources about data visualization and what you can find there. It is a list of websites dedicated to infodesign. Tools and technical sites is going to be listed next time.
Best and frequently updated sites
The site provides a lot of articles, that can inspire you and bring some ideas what you can visualize. The site is frequently updated and well written. You can find site author’s projects and a dozen of tutorials for dataviz with R and d3.js.
This website is a hub for dataviz news. The posts usually are links to another resources and examples. I am keen on the best month visualizations kind of posts. You can find a lot of cool stuff there, like this one.
This is David McCandless’s site — he is a designer and journalist based in London. The site has interesting design that the author uses in his work as well. You shall see David’s на speech on TED, it’s really nice. However, due to the specific design it is sometimes hard to navigate through the site and his blog.
Stephanie Evergreen personal website
The site is a personal page of info designer Stephanie Evergreen, who wrote Ph.D thesis on the topic and a book. I have not read it yet, but saw that it is recommended by several people. She also has a blog with a lot of useful posts
Robert Kosara's blog
Really cool blog.
Good blog about infographics and author’s observations.
A gallery from infogr.am

Collection of bad examples
The blog is a collection of junkcharts — bad examples of infodesign. Could be useful and fun!
Web-resources with little information or updated long time ago
Really nice web-site with an amount of cool articles. Alas, the last one come about a year ago.

On the one hand there are quite an amount of dataviz resources, on the other it would be nice to have more. ))) If you know some other useful resources share it in comments.
