A new art exhibit opening at the London Transport Museum shows us that the use of data visualization (presenting information in visual form) is not a new concept. Running from January 6 through March 18, 2012, Painting by Numbers – Making Sense of Statistics will display a collection of 20 posters by artists such as Charles Shepard, Alfred Leete, and Heinz Zinram created as far back as the 1920s to commend public transport in London and/or too assure travelers that their hard-earned money would be put to good use, rendering valuable services to them, when they opted to use the London Underground. More information about this display can be found at the London Transport Museum website, and those interested in viewing the Museum’s Poster Parade may find visitlondon.com useful as it lists ticket prices and travel information for visiting the exhibit.
