Recently an Infograph was released called “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” which showed the casualties of the US drone war. It is a visual representation of every strike carried out in Pakistan counting the deaths of civilians, children and others. It was created by a group of people from Pitch Interactive, a data visualization company. This Infograph is a great example of what you can do with technical data to show a major situation that is happening in our time. When you begin to look at the Infograph you can see how using this as a way to portray a message has worked for them. Pitch Interactive is a company who is constantly collecting statistical data for companies such as Esquire, Scientific America, Popular Science and other companies. Those who are interested in Technical Writing, this is a section of that large group and those skills of a technical writer are needed here.
