All information isn’t created equal and learning is often more about the way data is presented than anything else.

You may have to watch this a couple of times to catch them, but some of the most shocking highlights are the map that shows countries that executed juvenile offenders from 1990-2002 and the moving map that displays world flights over a 24-hour period.
