Infographics

Introduction
Visual presentation of news is getting more important in newspapers and magazines.In this golden age of data, visually literate personnel - professionals able to transform abstract, dull or complex data into accessible information in a visual way are essential at newsrooms.

Using powerful tools like charts, timelines, maps, scales and relationship diagrams,visual journalists make information clear and useful to the readers. At the same time infographics can provide an extra analysis and context to news readers, revealing patterns or trends missing in the loads of information.

From figurative representations to data driven visualisations, infographics fit into different editorial models and reader targets. Sports, business, features, and even cultural pages include good visual representation of information. The responsibility of information graphics professionals is to create honest and rigorous pieces of visual journalism by following the best journalistic practices in their work of art.
