A website that parallels a thesis titled The Form of Facts and Figures from Christian Behrer at the University of Postdam. It contains "a collection of 55 design patterns that describe the functional aspect of graphic components for the display , behaviour and user interaction of complex infographics ".

For each of these patterns, there is a description, a layout example and a real world example.
It is a bit unfortunate that this interesting and carefully designed information is embedded in a flash application, but reading from the homepage of the website, this will maybe change in a near future.
