Visibly Smart: Rosling’s 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes – The Joy of Stats
Have you seen this video? Hans Rosling animates data in real space. It’s a visually stunning display of stats whether or not you’re interested in health and wealth stats of people from 200 countries. Watching it made me wish that more business slide decks were re-considered and produced in this manner. Rosling recognizes that he needs to show data in ways people both enjoy and understand.
If you enjoyed this video, I’d suggest you check out the
Hans Rosling profile page on TED where you can watch more of his videos.
