This is great: a free, online app for producing attractive infographics. The site is easel.ly , and it's very usable. I can't wait to see professional infographics tech deployed outside of journalism in blogs, academic presentations, and snarky online parodies. If you enjoy this kind of thing I also highly recommend Visualise This , by Nathan Yau from flowingdata.com , which mixes design guruism with some stats and data visualisation examples, as well as concrete guides of how to get things done using software like R and Illustrator. For example, it turns out - not a lot of people know this - that most graphs, when they're exported as PDF from whatever stats or numbers program you use, are actually quite editable after the fact, in nice design apps, where you can make your data look beautiful.
Charts. Graphs. Spreadsheets. Most organizations have important data to present to their clients and customers. Yet we live in a world where we are bombarded with information.
Infographic credit: Ivan Cash Infographics are everywhere! Whether you’re a fan of them or not , infographics have become a staple of web content and are engaged in a seemingly endless love affair with social media. As digital marketers, we’re interested in the content marketing potential of infographics, which can generate thousands of pageviews, social media shares, backlinks and capture mindshare. If you’re interested in developing your own infographics to reap these potential benefits, we put together this list of 30+ useful infographic tools and resources to help you on your way. We included a well-rounded mix of charts & graphs generators, graphics programs, mind-mapping tools, and resources for finding data sets and statistics.
Information graphics which are the visual representation of data known as infogographics are making rounds online these days. It seems like web users are favouring this form of content format over other forms. Their visually attractive display, the bright and shiny colours they include are what make out of them an appealing means of communication.
Let's say you want to compare the airspeed velocity of various unladen swallows . You could put that data into a spreadsheet, or present it using a graph. Chances are you'll pick the latter.
A few days ago, we posted the website Easel.ly, a new web-based service that aims to empower lay users to design infographic-like illustrations within the browser. Unfortunately, Easel.ly seems more apt in combining infographic-like images on a canvas, than to link real numerical data to a graphical form. So here comes Infogr.am [infogr.am], another competitor towards semi-automatic, web-based infographics editing.
After 2 very similar posts in a very small timeframe, featuring Easel.ly and infogr.am respectively, I seem not to be able to follow the 'automatic infographics editing' scene fast enough. Automatic resume infographics creator visualize.me has just launched Venngage [venngage.com], which aims to empower people to create beautiful infographics in minutes, so that " creating infographics [becomes] as easy as creating a Powerpoint presentation ". As a unique feature, Venngage's visual elements are displayed as pure HTML elements, which should positively influence SEO stats, page ranks and back links. As with infogr.am, venngage is able to directly link custom data values to data-driven graphs, but offers more visualization techniques that go beyond the traditional pie chart, line graph and bar chart, and includes sophisticated techniques such as treemaps, bubble charts, word clouds, and the like.

In past articles, we’ve delved into dozens of aesthetic topics, but design work isn’t always purely aesthetic. Often, a truly “well-designed” solution is not only visually appealing, but flexible and efficient as well. There are instances when tunnel-visioning on visual appearance — and ignoring all other facets of a project — can leave you with a design that is beautiful to view but impractical to work with.
Most people would agree that the old adage “A picture is worth a thousand words” is also true for web based solutions. There should be no discussion – Charts and Graphs are ideal to visualize data in order to quickly deliver an overview and communicate key messages. Whatever type of data presentation you prefer or suits you data (pie charts, bubble charts, bar graphs, network diagrams etc.), there are many different options but how do you get started and what is technologically possible? In this article tripwire magazine present more than 75 Tools for Visualizing your data on a website and most of the options available will be covered. If you are aware of a tool, script etc. that deserves to be added to the list I would kindly ask you to leave a comment to everyone’s benefit.
