Yes, thanks Bill.

Here is another definition:

First of all, infographics and data visualizations are different animals. Infographics are best for visual storytelling and can sum up bite-size amounts of data in a quick, easy, compelling way. They require less time to create, but can be effective. Data visualizations, on the other hand, are useful for showing patterns in data. It requires more from the user as far as data sifting, cleaning and analyzing, but can also tell effective stories.

Good question, I like to make the following distinction:

 

While both are visualizations, Infographics are static graphical informational articles.  http://bit.ly/TI5Zqh

 

On the other hand, Advanced Visual Analytics entails the interactive discovery of trends, patterns and relationships in the data.  http://bit.ly/TI5Zqh

Can someone explain the distinction between an infographic and a data visualization?

Interesting ... of course, my daughter's "data visualization" appears solely in the video games she plays on my wife's iPAD.-/  She does, however, know DATA STEP terminology (at age 8.-)
