Mining Infographics

Every picture tells a story, but for a sector as complex and fascinating as mining, sometimes it takes a clever combination of words and pictures to make aspects of our story easily understandable at a glance. As author, data journalist and information designer David McCandless said in his TED talk: "By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map. And when you're lost in information, an information map is kind of useful."
