5 Free Tools for Creating Infographics | Convergence Journalism | Scoop.it

Generally, people don’t have the time or energy to sit and plow through pages or screens of text; they want to be able to ingest information as quickly and easily as possible. With the recent rise of infographics (information graphics), what used to require an avalanche of stats or analyses to dissect, can now be interpreted and relayed into an easy-to-read, fun, and visually appealing schematic – and an excellent content marketing concept.

That may sound a little disingenuous, in that we obviously have access to the Guardian's amazing Graphics and interactive teams for those pieces where we have a little more time - such as this map of public spending (created using Adobe Illustrator) or this Twitter riots interactive.

But for our day-to-day work, we often use tools that anyone can - and create graphics that anyone else can too...
