information graphic

See infographic.


(Information Graphic) An illustration or chart that instructs or informs people. Infographics are used worldwide in every discipline from road maps and street signs to product ads. Theoretically, infographics are developed to make a subject easier to understand than by using only text; however, they are often created to make a subject less boring to read. See information visualization.
