Richard Saul Wurman, the father of information architecture, believes “Public information should be made public.” His work, Understanding USA, published in 2000, is an excellent resource for those looking for guidance in the presentation of complex information—information designed to answer a specific question. His visual representations (Moore’s Law, Internet Users, Employment, Becoming President, Climatic Changes) demonstrate the expertise and precision of his work and serve as examples for others to follow.
