What is an infographic?

At its base definition, an infographic is a visual presentation of information. In the Age of Data, you see infographics everyday. They're on your Pinterest board or Facebook feed. They may pop up in a commercial or print ad. Classrooms and textbooks use them. In the US, the next time your nightly news cuts to a map outlining red and blue states, you'll be looking at an infographic.
