Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

What Is Visualization?

What Is Visualization? | iEduc |

This seems like a straightforward question, but it’s proven to be a difficult one to answer. Even visualization researchers don’t have a clear definition.


Is it synonymous with information graphics? Does visualization have to be computer generated? Does data have to be involved, or can it be abstract? The answers vary depending on who you ask.


Visualization is a medium. It’s not just an analysis tool nor just a way to prove a point more clearly through data.


Visualization is like books. There are different writing styles and categories, there are textbooks and there are novels, and they communicate ideas in different ways for varied purposes. And just like authors who use words to communicate, there are rules that you should always follow and others that are guidelines that you can bend and break...

De très nombreux exemples d'infographies, malheureusement pas toujours aboutis. A croiser avec d'autres infographies ou représentations sur des sujets identiques ou bien à rapprocher des données sources.

Interesting insight into the internet

Emilio Ruano's curator insight, May 4, 2015 1:17 PM

At least, the concern about equality, energy and social welfare is there. I like the last one about engineers tho. Hahaha.

I think this article is awesome because they use data visualization to show what people share the most, visit the most, and search the most. Data is everywhere and people are using it everyday and sometimes don't even think about it.

What's Going On in This Picture? Learning about Visual Thinking Strategies

What's Going On in This Picture? Learning about Visual Thinking Strategies | iEduc |

The NY Times is beginning a new feature called "What's Going on in this Picture?" This post introduces Visual Thinking Strategies (V.T.S.).

"How do you make sense of what you see when you look at an image, especially if that image comes with no caption, headline, links or other clues about its origins? What can constructing meaning from an image teach you?"

While V.T.S. uses works of visual art, the NT Times will be using photojournalism and hosting an online discussion. On Monday they will post an image "with no caption, no headline and no helpful link back to an article." The goal is to answer "What's going on in this picture?" based on what you "can gather from the image itself."
