Infographics are the visualizations or charts that are used to present a large amount of material to readers. This type of design is utilized to communicate information that would be impossible or too time-consuming to be explained solely by text or series of illustrations. At the most pedestrian level, pie charts, maps, traffic signs, and bar graphs are types of infographics. Instruction manuals and children’s books often use infographics to explain processes that require step-by-step explanations. More intricate designs are often found in scientific and mathematical communities to display research and data.
Instead of pouring over figures and long reports to decipher data, an infographic can immediately make apparent exactly what a dataset actually means.
