I’ve always thought The Globe and Mail created some fine infographics, but I couldn’t find them on the Web.
Not a problem any more.
Here’s a sample from Feb. 7, about the political pinata known as the St. Clair streetcar line:
But one problem is the accompanying short article didn’t migrate with the infographic!
There is a separate story on the Web where you can also find the infographic: Much maligned St. Clair line not so bad after all.
Some facts in there that you don’t find on the infographic:
- the line opened in June 2010
- it ranks 8th in productivity (boardings per hour) for the TTC’s 150 surface routes
- explanation for the project’s completion delays (project creep, delays caused by a lawsuit that was ultimately dismissed)
The St. Clair line had been budgeted to cost $65 million. Its final cost was $106 million.
That’s all useful context. That’s why although it’s good you can find the infographic on the Web, there should be a link back to the John Lorinc story with which it was originally paired in print.
