Things we love: Infographics

We are really excited about the potential that maps have to represent information in an accessible and visual way. Infographics are another great way to do this, as they strive to present information quickly and effectively. Here are some of our favorite ones:

We're planning to make some infographics for GHI once we're back at Middlebury! Any suggestions of what we should show? What do you think would make a cool infographic? What could be explained better? What visuals would you appreciate? Look at their website and let us know: http://gardensforhealth.org/ (this means you Laura Romig, our biggest fan!)
