Compelling, Useful Infographics
The value infographics bring to Web professionals is the ability to present dry, statistical content in a compelling format.
CBS Sports, for example, developed an interactive visualization using Tableau Software to aid its fantasy football enthusiasts in selecting the best running back for the 2009 season.
Visitors are able to identify the best running backs by comparing players, their projected opportunities and the defensive matchups they will face throughout the season (as seen below).
This infographic crunches vast amounts of data into one, easy-to-use and interactive block of content.
