Information graphics, or infographics, are visual presentations of data or other content that explain something that words alone cannot do. They combine visual tools —drawings, diagrams, charts, maps, photos, timelines, etc.— with words to communicate ideas and concepts such as how something works, how it changed over time or how it relates to something else, often much better than the words alone can.
