Timeline of Graphics Innovation (6200 BC to 2004 AD)

Michael Friendly and Daniel J. Dennis have compiled a great site on Milestones in the History of Thematic Cartography, Statistical Graphics, and Data Visualization. There are (as you might guess) an extensive number of images. Topics covered range from a Turkish map c. 6200 BC to 19th-century statistical maps to Tuftean sparklines.
