(Apologies for the sparse number of postings over thge past few weeks. Other commitments and a lack of a consistent Internet connection have prevented me from posting more than I have. )

The Gallery of Data Visualization from Michael Friendly and Daniel J. Denis of York University in Toronto has a number of interesting pages on its site, including a number on the milestones in the history of thematic cartography, statistical graphics and data visualization starting with a town map dating back to 6200 B. C. and running to 2000. Included are lniks to images and descriptive text. Cartographic milestones seem somewhat spotty but the list of milestones is broken out mostly by century and is easy to scan. An interesting set of links to both well-known and not so well-known data visualization examples. The written descriptions / historical narrative is also available in a pdf format, complete with active links to the images being discussed.
