About The New World Order Map:

This map was discovered by Helen Somers in a window in Philadelphia during World War II. It was completed in October 1941, before Pearl Harbor, was printed in bright colors by a cartographer named Maurice Gomberg in Philadelphia in 1942, and was displayed in his store window. Helen Somers immediately recognized the significance of the map and purchased several. At least a few original copies are still in existence, including one in the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.


1. We, the U.S.A., in cooperation with our allies, for reasons of our national safety and in the interests of international morality, are determined to crush and completely destroy the military power of the Axis aggressors, and their satellites regardless of cost, effort and time necessary to accomplish this task.

2. The old world order of colonial oppression, exploitation of dominions, rival imperialism and mercenary balance of power diplomacy; of majesties, dictators, privileged minorities, plutocratic monopolists and similar social parasites; the corrupted order responsible for the present world cataclysm, endangering our national safety and peaceful process, shall never rise again.

3. A New World Moral Order for permanent peace and freedom shall be established at the successful conclusion of the present war.

También un Estado hebreo.
Smaller entities include Eire (the whole of Ireland), Greece (including Albania), Turkey (excluding European Turkey), Hebrewland (the Holy Land plus Jordan) and Japan. The three axis states (Germany, Italy and Japan) were to be ‘quarantained’ until they could be readmitted in the family of nations.

European Automobile Manufactures´Association.
Septiembre de 2010

El peor gráfico del mes.
Las dos escalas complican la lectura.
Lo más intrincado es entender la evolución del volumen de nuevos registros.
Es una evolución muy sencilla, que se ha complicado en exceso.
Tres tonos de color azul que en realidad no harían falta si se hiciese una evolución normal.
Duplica la barra del mes del año anterior y la compara con la del año en cuestión, manteniendo la evolución. Al mezclarse con la clave de color, la compresión se hace inaccesible.

The European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA), founded in 1991, represents the interests of the sixteen European car, truck and bus manufacturers at EU level.

Its membership consists of the major international automobile companies, working together in an active association to ensure effective communication and negotiation with legislative, commercial, technical, consumer, environmental and other interests. The members of ACEA are competitors in the automobile market place and support free and fair competition as a trade policy and a legal concept.

GRAPHICS: Information is not beautiful

Definir la información como ‘bonita’, ‘hermosa’, ‘maravillosa’ o similares no es muy acertado.
Lo que debe definir a la información es la veracidad.
Luego te puede gustar más o menos. Repase cualquier portada de un diario ‘serio’.
La información periodística debe ser dura, jurídica, legal, educativa, instructiva.
Según la RAE, en su tercera acepción, la información es la ‘averiguación jurídica y legal de un hecho’.
La información es investigación.
Jugar con el arte cuando hablamos de información es peligroso y traslada a la infografía al campo del marketing y la publicidad.

Buceando en la red encontramos este POST titulado «100 seriously Creative Infographics’.
Debería haberse llamado «100 unreliable designs».

Trabajos creativos, diseño por el diseño.
Poca fortuna informativa.
Díficil lectura, o imposible.
No enseñan nada.
Pirotecnia gráfica.
Desperdicio de espacio.

Moraleja: un juego de números, de colores o de tipografía NO es un infográfico.
Lo peor de todo es que lo cuelgan en la red para que nos inspiremos.
Así nos va.

La portavoz del Grupo Popular, Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría, volvió ayer a ser portada de el diario EL MUNDO. Esta vez muestra una gráfica del desempleo en España.

Últimamente los políticos hacen uso de las gráficas para reflejar la situación del país. En este caso, el gráfico de barras está mal realizado. No respeta la escala, ofreciendo una visión distorsionada de la realidad.

Se exagera. Parece que con lo que está lloviendo en el mercado laboral español, no hace falta exagerar rompiendo la escala; la gráfica correcta ofrece por sí misma una panorámica desoladora.
