Website Wednesday

Website Wednesday is an occasional feature in which we highlight one (or a couple) of sites from the Billions floating around the Intertoobz that just might help you with your Herculean task of educating inquiring minds. Any and all suggestions for future editions are welcome.

I’ve been fascinated by infographics ever since I started reading about Edward Tufte and making Wordles, but in the last year I’ve seen a lot of really informative ones, including that really compelling one on adjuncts that I posted last week, along with this list of educational infographics, this one on how much cats actually kill (hint: a lot!), and this one, which I’ve seen referred to as “everything that’s wrong with America in a single graphic.”  With each one that I saw, I grew increasingly curious what tools people are using to make these things. So I did a Google and found this.

Here are ten tools for making them, in the form of a list titled, “Ten Tools to Easily Make Your Own Infographic.” I haven’t used any of them, but I plan to. If you have used any of them, let us know how it went and user-friendly they are.

And if you’ve made one, post it!
