- Open Data is empowering.
- Sharing data publicly helps organizations make better-informed decisions and build on top of existing information.

Infographics took over the Internet in 2013. Indeed, they are a great way to crystallize the findings from a lengthy report into a single clear visual with just the top highlights of data, comparisons, etc. But, too often organizations spend money hiring designers to do infographics that are too complex, get lost in the data, miss the forest for the trees, or because of other misguided approaches, lower trust in infographics across the board.
During a recent Communications Network webinar, Resource Media’s Liz Banse and Nicole Lampe shared seven best practices around the use of infographics, They also presented two case studies of successful infographic releases.
