“Infographics” or “information graphics” represent data, information, or knowledge in a visually appealing format. Infographics include attractive images to represent ideas, and may also include data visualizations. Two free online tools can help create infographics: Visual.ly and Easel.ly (currently in beta). Visual.ly also lets users share their infographics, so you can explore the visualizations that others have created. Easel.ly has a number of pre-made themes and pre-made design elements, so you don’t have to start from scratch to build an infographic.
