Piktochart

An infographic, also known as a data visualization, is a visual display of information through the
use of graphics, color, and symbols. Infographics allow the viewer to "experience" the information
on a variety of levels. In our 21st century world, we are accustomed to receiving information
in small bytes. Infographics allow us to absorb information in this manner.
