Infographics (a clipped compound of information and graphics) is a graphic visual representation of information, data or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. Infographics can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system’s ability to see patterns and trends. Infographics have evolved in recent years to be for mass communication and thus are designed with fewer assumptions about the readers' knowledge base than other types of visualizations. Isotypes are an early example of infographics conveying information quickly and easily to the masses.
