If you have any interest in information graphics, maps, or history, you know
of the seminal flow map of Napoleon's 1812 march into Russia by Charles-
Joseph Minard, made famous by Edward Tufte, and considered to be one of
the most magnificent data graphics ever produced. The Minard System
explores the nineteenth-century civil engineer's career and the story behind
this masterpiece of multivariate data, as well as sixty of Minard's other
statistical graphics reflecting social and economic changes of the Industrial
Revolution in Europe and around the world. These stunning drawings are
from the collection of the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chaussees in Paris
and have never before been published in their entirety.


Sandra Rendgen is an author and editor with a focus on information
graphics, interactive media, and the history of information visualization.
Based in Berlin, Germany, she studied art history and cultural theory and
is the co-author of Information Graphics and Understanding the World:
The Atlas of Infographics
