Types of Graphs [infographic] | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

Graphs are a visual treat, as they can present complex information in a quick and easy manner. Mostly graphs are used to reveal a trend, compare statistics or they can be even used to establish relationship between two different variables.

There are several types of graphs and each graph has different display properties to represent the data. Based on the information, choose a graph that depicts data in an effective way.
This infographic shares some interesting information about different graph types.

How to Create Infographics in 30 Minutes or Less

How to Create Infographics in 30 Minutes or Less | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

From word clouds to network data visualizations, infographics have become a primary format for content in a relatively short period of time. Although the ‘infographic’ is nothing new, its proliferation and evolution has been nothing short of exponential in the past few years.

If you want to get a message across, whether it is for your business, blog, or book club, using an infographic can be the best way to do it. If you’re incapable of drawing a recognizable human stick figure, let alone an entire data visualization, you may be agonizing over the disturbing fact that infographics are all the rage.

It just so happens that there are many people out there who want to deliver a message using an infographic who do not have any artistic skills. It’s lucky for us that tools and resources have popped up all over the place to help even the most hopeless of us (like me) create beautiful infographics.

Visit the article link for instructions on how to do it in thirty minutes or less...

Why Infographics Are Great for Marketing | Contently

Why Infographics Are Great for Marketing | Contently | mojo 3 | Scoop.it
The mind filters out 99 percent of information, but infographics tend to stick.

 

How meta: An infographic on infographics! 

 

Neo Mammalian Studios has produced this infographic on how they are great marketing tools for businesses.

 

It’s full of fascinating facts. For example, it states that on average, a person is exposed to the equivalent of 174 newspapers filled with information daily, and that “99 percent of all sensory information is filtered out by the brain almost immediately.”

 

Infographics, apparently, help information get into that one percent that sticks.

 

According to Neo Mammalian, in a little more than two years, infographic search volumes on Google have increased by over 800 percent, and “publishers who use infographics grow in traffic an average of 12 percent more than those who don’t.”...

Data Visualization: Degrees of Interactivity in Infographics

Data Visualization: Degrees of Interactivity in Infographics | mojo 3 | Scoop.it

With the ever-evolving technological capacities of the Internet we have seen a trend towards interactivity and rich media on the web. Data visualization design is following suit with highly interactive infographics.

 

Data visualization has always been an effective method of representing information. We can date the earliest versions of graphs and information mapping back to the early 1600’s, when Christoph Scheiner and his peers began using diagrams to represent his astronomical research of the sun’s rotation. Technology has given us the ability to visually represent data much more easily with programs like Microsoft Excel, Tulip, Tableau, OmniGraffle and Adobe Illustrator. Software of this nature enables the creation of really stunning and artistic infographics.

 

Additionally, with the ever-evolving technological capacities of the Internet, we have seen a trend towards interactivity and rich media on the web. Dynamic content with high engagement is the most impactful with web viewers, positively affecting user retention and click-through rates. Interactive infographics are essentially a new branch of user experience design using our familiar friends: CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. There are different degrees of interactivity in dynamic infographics: passive viewer, interactive, and highly interactive.

The 5 Key Ingredients of Great Infographics

The 5 Key Ingredients of Great Infographics | mojo 3 | Scoop.it
Everyone wants a great infographic. Generic as it sounds, it's overwhelmingly true.

Commissioners — the companies that hire designers or design firms to create infographics — want great results, whether it’s social media sharing, coverage by large websites and media or even achieving specific goal conversion rates. Designers want to work on and ultimately create a great piece that they are proud to include in their portfolio. And end users… well, they just like to look at great things that are beautiful, informative, original and shareable, ideally all at once. So how do you make a great infographic?


Much has been discussed about creating viral infographics and the role that story, data and design play, but viral doesn’t always equal “great” in a more conservative sense: a solid, informative, ethical piece that is beautifully designed and flawlessly executed.

Creating an infographic that is successful in the eyes of the client, design firm and audience is often elusive — but not impossible. At Visual.ly, the process starts out each project trying to do just that, and from the most successful projects (and the experience of going through not-so-successful ones), they extrapolated what are the key ingredients of producing infographics with the desired results.
