The World’s Population by Eye Colour – Visual Data Representation

Visual Data Representation (Infographic) :

Using infographics is one of the easiest ways to make confusing data easy to read for anyone. Visual representation of data helps communicate graphs, tables, and data easy to read and appealing to the eye. I chose to research the world’s population by eye colour and instead of naming the colour and percent of the world corresponding with that colour I chose to create an eyeball to represent this data. At first look, this representation already gives you a hint on what you may be reading about (the eyeball) and at a closer look you can read more into each colours representation, by the population, and why different pigmentations are shown on iris. Whether its Rayleigh, low melanin or high melanin you can learn why your eyes are the colour they are, as well as how the world population average’s in eye colours.

Below  is an infographic representing the eye colours of the world’s population,
