Use Maps in Your Infographics

Last month the free infographic creation service introduced the option to include videos in your infographics. Today, I received an email from them announcing a new option for adding maps to your infographics.

To add a map to your infographic just select "map" from the insert menu (on the right side of the editing screen) then double-click on the map to add data to it. When you double-click on the map a spreadsheet will open. In that spreadsheet you can enter country names and data points for those countries. Your map can display data for as many countries as you like.

Applications for Education
With last month's addition of video support and today's addition of map support, is becoming a better and better tool that students can use to create visual displays of data and research that they gather.

The Hohli Online Charts Builder could be a good tool for any student that needs to create a data visualization for an online or in-person presentation. Because the charts update as each new piece of data is added, students will be able to see how each data set they add affects their chart's display.
