An infographic is a representation of information in a graphic format designed to make the data easily understandable at a glance. The process of creating infographics can be referred to as data visualization, information design, information architecture.

Also the graphical illustrations of certain things make a space in our mind more quickly compared to non graphical theory. Consuming data using a visual representation is much faster than reading. It only takes 1/10th of a second to understand a visual scene. Gaining knowledge seems to be fast and easy when using infographics.
