Good point. Too many people seem to think that they can create an infographic simply by slapping some brightly coloured graphics on some dull statistics. Here's a simple test to determine whether a chart is a genuine infographic. If the graphic is meaningless without the supporting percentage figure then it does not convey additional information and is not an infographic. If you can lose the graphic without losing any additional information - then it is not an infographic. A genuine infographic not only illustrates the information but draws it out, so as to make it clearer and easier to comprehend. Infographics are particularly good at demonstrating relative relationships. You should be able to look at an infographic and get an immediate insight into the structure of the underlying data without reading every statistic in detail.
