Information is Beautiful, founded by David McCandless, provides visualizations that are based on facts and data. According to its own statements, it is dedicated to helping people make clearer, more informed decisions about the world. Especially in corona times, people depend on being able to read and classify the mass of information correctly. The hashtag #coronavirus brings together a visually attractive and informative collection of visualizations that help to understand the pandemic.
