Infographics or Information Graphics are visual representation of data and information. This kind of visual representation is used whenever complex information needs to be presented or explained clearly and quickly. Infographics mostly contain visual elements such as signs, maps, charts, diagrams or other graphic representation that will aid easy comprehension of complex data. They are often more powerful than plain imagery or words in transcending context, understanding and meaning to readers in a manner they have not previously experienced. Thus, treating them to a visual feast to learn, become enlightened, and motivated to learn more.
