So without further ado, I present you with the 10 best infographics of 2010 (Click to Enlarge):

Update: we now offer social media infographics to the public.

1 – The Almighty Dollar: Mapping Distribution of Income By Religious Belief

Quite possibly one of the more controversial infographics this year, GOOD and Column Five do a great job showing a distribution of wealth across the USA by religion:

  • I would say these are examples of terrible infographics. Perhaps some nice art, but these examples of poor use of graphics to convey meaning. See Stephen Few’s blog for some great examples and principles for visualizing information in a manner that is concise, interesting and useful.

  • Some of the info in these is interesting, but the “best gift by age” one really threw me off. What a sexist infographic…
