science magazine 2005 visualization challenge recently announced the science infographic winner: a poster of a team of marketing experts from Omega Optical Inc., titled 'Fluoressence: The Essence of Fluorescence'. according to the jury 'the winning rainbow of light-sensitive molecules can both spice up a drab laboratory wall & provide a quick-reference guide for fluorescence microscopists. the design team used a rainbow of photographs of dyes & other fluorophores & included critical emission & excitation wavelengths for each fluorophore.'
although its visual '-graphics' seems quite intruiging at first, it is the (extremely small) 'info-' part that keeps me wondering. what have the (infographics) experts have to say about this? see also chemical galaxy & new orleans infographics. [sciencemag.org]
