13 Reasons Why Your Brain Craves Infographics

13 Reasons Why Your Brain Craves Infographics | visual data | Scoop.it

The problem with the infographics is that they’re normally static images. But with HTML5 these infographics are changing and becoming even more awesome.

Take a look at this one for example. This article shows screenshots, but as soon as you go to the actual website, you will see movement while you scroll, you can interact with several elements and you will be able to quickly follow up on a source.

Data Visualization: Degrees of Interactivity in Infographics

Data Visualization: Degrees of Interactivity in Infographics | visual data | 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.

A Living, Breathing Infographic: A Look at the Web's First Socially Generative Visualization

A Living, Breathing Infographic: A Look at the Web's First Socially Generative Visualization | visual data | Scoop.it
The idea of a Socially Generative Visualization originated out of a section of the design handbook INFOGRAPHICS.
An SGV, as described by the authors, is a new direction for data visualization– one which marketers and content consumers alike should take note of– especially as content distribution continues to be affected by socially relevant data.

What’s the next step when you’re looking to give your viewers a deeper interaction with your content? Apparently, we should be looking at “socially generative visualizations,” a novel approach that combines the best aspects of traditional static Infographics and classic interactive interfaces with a new purpose: “to allow the viewer to interact with the content in a more meaningful way by contributing to and actually being a part of the measured data that is displayed.”

Visualization (Sensemaking) in Rapid Agile Learning Design

Visualization (Sensemaking) in Rapid Agile Learning Design | visual data | Scoop.it

Common definitions of visualization usually read something like, “to form a mental image,” thus we often think of visualization as being a simple solo technique, such as picturing “a dog eating a bone” or “a person doing the right thing.” However in an organization context, visualization is much more complex in that while it involves an image of the working environment, it is also a complex process that is very social in nature.

Visualization is often used interchangeably with sensemaking—making sense of the world we live and operate in, and then acting within that framework of understanding to achieve desired goals. Thus visualization is not just a shared (social) image with intent, it also implies ACTION. This framework can be used for building agile or rapid learning designs, fixing performance problems, implementing informal learning solutions, etc...
