How Much Data is That?

rmmojado's picture
Words like megabyte, gigabyte, terabyte, etc., get tossed around a lot, but do you really intuitively understand how much data it means to say a gigabyte, or what it could represent? When people use words like these, they often will use them in the abstract sense without having much of a realistic handle on what they actually mean in the real world, or what sorts of data amounts they actually correspond to.This image elegantly lays out in real-world terms how much data these words actually signify, and what they mean with actual concrete examples.
