Had to share this graphic passed along via a comment on another post. I love maps and statistical graphics because they are so helpful in understanding complex information.
I learned so much about the US budget so quickly with this, especially when you toggle back and forth between 2010 and 2011, and when you hide mandatory spending. Trying to grasp this from an Excel sheet would've cramped my brain. Visual learning is the best.
Maps. Aaron didn't even know I loved them when he submitted this resumé...!
