More E-Waste Data

After class today, Michael Bush brought to my attention another very good source for data on e-waste. The United Nations Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability published a report on e-waste that includes useful data sets and some very interesting infographics. If you’re still looking for data or want some inspiration for your hand-rendered visualization, take a look. Most useful from my perspective is the explanation of how they calculate amounts of e-waste generated. The above graphic is unrelated to the report. However, it touches on the exportation of e-waste, which some folks asked about in class.
