Whether infographics come from programming or painting, data display is an art. GOOD magazine sports some of the best around, and always on a hot topic.

For more information on the "Great Pacific Trash Heap," look to Miriam C. Goldstein, the chief scientist on the SEAPLEX team. To hear an interview with Miriam, check out the NPR Science Friday story that aired July 31, 2009.
