    Fabulous list – thanks Stephen

  2. Stephen, incredible list.

    We humbly submit our site Factbrowser (www.factbrowser.com) as an addition to your Data Sources section. We’re a discovery engine for research on consumers, business, and technology.

    And unlike most infographics, we always link to original sources (studies and their authors’ homepages)!

  3. 3 weeks ago I was just learning about infographics! After I found this list, I became a new “expert” on how to find, create, and better use them! Thank you :)

    That’s what I have been looking for!

    I am working as a freelance designer for 5 years and I need to expand my area of working to the field of infographics.

    Thanks for making such a good sm-up!
