Regardless of your industry, data is becoming more abundant, although gaining data from clean granular, trustworthy sources is still a challenge. Here’s some starting points to help you find data:
- Own data – You could use data you may already collect, such as the number of visitors to your website. You could also conduct your own surveys and have the community fill them out.
- Open data – Open data is available to anyone for free. You can download, modify, and use them without much restriction (e.g. commercial purposes). Open data is usually provided by government, foundations, and non-profit organisations.
- Partner data – By partnering with relevant companies, you could access their data through a data partnership.
Infographics can be created in various ways. The most common tools are paid design software such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. There are many tools available for free on the market to create an infographic, such as Canva.
Infographics come in many forms depending on the type of data and function. The most common are timeline, process, map, and flowchart. A timeline infographic visualises events over time. A process infographic shows the steps in a procedure. A map infographic shows geographic trends or patterns. A flowchart is similar to a process infographic, except a flowchart has more structure and helps visualise hierarchy. For more chart types and their functions take a look at the useful data viz catalogue.
There are many notable pioneers in infographic design, such as Edward Tufte, William Playfair, and Florence Nightingale. More recently, newsrooms have made large strides in the field such as New York Times, Financial Times, The Economist, and many more.
You might have seen infographics in your daily life. You might see them on a poster ad while you wait for your train, or in your feed as you scroll through social media. Examples of infographics are Creative Routines of Successful People, London Infrastructure Plan 2050, and What Makes a Good Visualization.
