There is an interesting blog post over at wallstats.com (well known from the Death and Taxes), analyzing and critiquing some of the recent charts and graphs created by the US Pentagon. It demonstrates how the graphics coming out of each branch of the military are vastly different. For instance, the Navy's graphics are less polished with a focus on line charts and the occasional concept map, while the Air Force really goes over the top, from "baffling to well, more baffling".
The article raises the issue that these documents are used to brief major decision makers, and asks the question "Why does the Department of Defense, which is an economy the size of Turkey, put out such inconsistent and poor visualizations?".
