Information is Beautiful
These days Im an independent visual & data journalist. A passion of mine is for visualizing information facts, data, ideas, subjects, issues, statistics, questions all with the minimum of words.
Im interested in how designed information can help us understand the world, cut through BS and reveal hidden connections, patterns and stories underneath. Or, failing that, it can just look cool!
My pet-hate is pie charts. Love pie. Hate pie-charts.

Information Aesthetics Weblog
Inspired by Lev Manovich's definition of "information aesthetics", this weblog explores the symbiotic relationship between creative design and the field of information visualization.
More specifically, it collects projects that represent data or information in original or intriguing ways.

Glasshouse
http://tinyurl.com/c4gypw
The software, Glasshouse by Green Phosphor, lets you take data from either a spreadsheet or database query and place a 3D representation of it into a virtual world environment where it can then be explored interactively.
Users are inserted into the virtual world as an avatar which can then manipulate the visualization of the data by drilling down into it, re-sorting it, or even just spinning it around to see it from all angles.

Data Visualisations of the Delicious (Social Bookmarking) website
"There are some fascinating tools out there for seeing Delicious in totally new, visual, ways. Some of them, like Delicious Soup, may seem a bit silly at first, but they grow on you as you explore what they can actually do."

Data Visualization: Modern Approaches
Data presentation can be beautiful, elegant and descriptive. There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data - tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. However, to convey a message to your readers effectively, sometimes you need more than just a simple pie chart of your results.
In fact, there are much better, profound, creative and absolutely fascinating ways to visualize data. Many of them might become ubiquitous in the next few years.

Wikipedia page on Data Visualisation
"Data visualization is the study of the visual representation of data, defined as information which has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information."
The main goal of data visualization is to communicate information clearly and effectively through graphical means. It doesnt mean that data visualization needs to look boring to be functional or extremely sophisticated to look beautiful.
Data visualization is closely related to Information graphics, Information visualization, Scientific visualization and Statistical graphics. According to Frits Post (2003) data visualization is currently a very active and vital area of research, teaching and development. The term unites the established field of scientific visualization and the more recent field of information visualization
