2 different redesigns of the controversial military slide illustrating the current situation in Iraq, posted here a couple of days ago. some of the original visual features seem to have been kept, such as the cryptic icons accompanying the categories.
the first version presents a 3D perspective of the data. the visual form conveys the path towards chaos, as measured by time & conflict factors, in its progression towards the foreground. the 2nd alternative offers a flat view of the same data, rendered as a 2-D barometer of order to chaos, with relevant timepoints signified on a yellow-red continuum.
which one do you like the most & why?
