A Visual History of Human Knowledge | Manuel Lima | TED Talks

Video Channel: TED

How does knowledge grow? Sometimes it begins with one insight and grows into many branches. Infographics expert Manuel Lima explores the thousand-year history of mapping data — from languages to dynasties — using trees of information. It's a fascinating history of visualizations, and a look into humanity's urge to map what we know.
