What is Infographics?
There are lot of phrase around the term Information graphics like
“Infographics.” “Data visualization.” “Information design. & “Communication Design”

We’re talking about any graphic that displays and explains information, whether that be data or words. When we use the term “data visualization,” we’re using it as a general term used to describe data presented in a visual way.

Why Infographics?
Infographics are important because they change the way people find and
experience stories especially now, when more and more infographics are being used to augment editorial content on the web. Infographics create a new way of seeing the world of data, and they help communicate complex ideas in a clear and beautiful way.

One Response to “All About Infographics”

    Firstly, if you’re defining “infographics” so broadly that it makes no useful distinction between hieroglyphs and illustrations, then you’re already in the land of useless information. Hieroglypsh aren’t really “infographics” in the modern sense; they’re just text (note that hieroglyphic inscriptions usually include actual illustrations). I mean, yes, text is itself a kind of graphical way to represent information, but they’re aren’t really saying “put a bunch of text on your page”, are they? Just the opposite.

    I’m assuming that English is not their native language and we shouldn’t dwell too much on the “brainstrom” page. Our “brainstrom” is supposed to lead us to “channelise” and “zero down,” whatever that means? I guess someone forgot to “cross check the data to deliver flawless content.”

    When we are commanded to “show!” what exactly is the lifted leg of the Kung-Fu Panda showing us?
