Spatial Infographics

Data visualizations are commonly used in many different fields of business activity. They are often used in infographics as well as making up the entire infographic. There are a few different types of visualizations, including the spatial one. It can be used for representing any needed set of data.

The most commonly used types of visualization categories are time-series data, statistical distributions, hierarchies, networking, and maps. Maps can be referred to the so-called “spatial” infographics.

While designing the visual aspect of any infographics, a few considerations must be made in order to optimize their effectiveness. There are six components of any visual encoding that are marks, connection, retinal properties, enclosure, temporal and spatial encoding. Each of them can be used in its own way for representing different relationships between different types of data.

Many design specialists often spatially represent the most important relationship. This relationship may be depicted in any infographics by using three basic provisions of communication that need to be assessed while working on designing an infographic: comprehension, retention, and appeal. The order of importance of such provisions depends on the purpose of the infographic as a whole.

Being used for commercial and editorial purposes (for example, for a newspaper, a magazine, etc.), any spatial infographics can be created in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software by using the pre-made easy-to-use spatial infographics drawing tools from the Spatial Infographics solution that contains a lot of the spatial infographics examples, stencil libraries full of vector elements, map templates that can be filled in the way it is needed in order to make the professionally looking spatial infographics.

This solution can be useful for different officials, state managers, economists, politicians, analysts and other economic experts; military specialists, analysts, strategists, tacticians, defence experts, managers, engineers and defence researchers, counterintelligence; business consultants, trainers; marketing specialists, advertising agents, PR-managers, sales managers; HR-managers, recruiters and many other specialists.


There are 9 libraries containing 387 vector stencils in the Spatial Infographics solution.
