Tuesday Tip: Infographics

Tip duty falls to me today . . . Infrographics! I have come across two articles on this topic recently. This one from Fast Company was the shortest, but has 5 great ways you can create or consume infographics. Some of you may be familiar with my fondness for flowcharts and diagrams.

Whether you want to create or consume infographics, the article above has 5 great options. Some, like Wordle, may be old favorites. Others like Hohli (an online chart builder) may be new. If you want to take a look at data created by others, check out the Google Public Data Explorer or Many Eyes. You’ll find interactive datasets on everything from population and unemployment to Doctor Who villains and royal wedding search term popularity.
