Interesting Infographics

I am developing a passion for infographics and plan to do some work in the near future to present some research information in a simple way. If you are not familiar with infographics here is a definition from Wikipedia:

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge. These graphics present complex information quickly and clearly,[1] such as in signs, maps, journalism, technical writing, and education. With an information graphic, computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians develop and communicate concepts using a single symbol to process information.

I found infographics useful to communicate with athletes and coaches and I think such approach can help us in educating young athletes.

Recently I was made aware of two excellent ones.

The first one was developed by Insurance Quotes and it refers to data on Inactivity.



The second one was developed by the very talented Sarah Wenger and illustrates the importance of hygiene in the workplace to reduce the risks of illness.

With so many energy drinks out there containing caffeine it is a bit of a jungle to give advice to athletes and coaches and/or educate everyone about different options.

This Caffeine Poster was developed by Randy Krum and it is available on his great blog coolinfographics.


I think this is just another great example of how to present data in a meaningful way. Well done Randy!
