Crowd-sourced infographics

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry has started a website this month to show facts about Japan via submitted infographics – like the one on the aging population, above. Interested designers can submit an illustration on a topic, using expert data, and chosen ones are uploaded. Like any crowd-sourced illustrations, much of the quality is not high, but at least it is an interesting idea from a government, picking up on infographic popularity.
