Asian Longhorned Beetle Killing New York City Trees
What a novel concept, an infographic that actually gives information that is crucial and possibly life-changing…at least to some trees. While not a true infographic in the most strict and classical sense of the word, it does graphically display the area where the Asian Longhorned Beetle is having a devastating affect on the trees in New York.
The content is interesting, especially if you are a resident of New York, and provided in an easy to read format. The problem is broken down and then a solution, also easily seen, is given. How handy.
The graphics are well done, if not spectacular, mixing photography with computer graphics. A illustration of the insect is included, but an actual photo would be nice for identification.
This is a great way to get out a public service message and the care in design is evident.
Graphics are handled well, but a missed opportunity took the grade down for not showing a photo of the Asian Longhorned Beetle.
What more could you want? Just the facts. Here’s the problem. Here’s the solution. Fix it!
