Talk to me about web trends using facts and data all you want, but I have to see it in pictures to understand it. Or maps, like this cool web trend 2009 map that gives a perfect overview of the internet. Information Architects mapped the 333 most influential web domains and the 111 most influential internet people onto the Tokyo Metro map. The height of a station refers to its traffic, revenue and trend. Its width represents the stability of the company behind the domain. Why spell it out when you can draw it out? This picture / map speaks a thousand words! Access the humungous web trends map here on flickr.com.
Pretty amazing, isn't it? and JUST COOL!
