More infographics

Thursday, 17 November 2011

Another lovely example of an infographic.  This time showing the history and company development of the many different US Airlines.

[Image from here]
This graphic was designed and created by Larry Gormley of HistoryShots. From the website:
The purpose of this graphic is to uncover and explain how the industry was created and how it arrived at its present form. At the core is a full genealogy of over 100 US airlines from the major airlines to the small local service carriers. Folded into the genealogy is the relative market share of passenger traffic for each airline. This allows the viewer to understand how the industry was controlled for many decades by the Big Four and how this dominance was quickly replaced by a number of other airlines.
