Nicole Elizabeth Sands's curator insight, November 18, 2013 5:10 AM

Infographics are especially useful when it comes to correlating information, with us having a visual representation of different data displays  we are better adept to making  meaningful assumptions of that data. Still it's important to never disregard the sources, those are what validate the pretty pics/infographics.
