Infographics

Infographics are visual representations of information in the form of a chart, schematics or other image accompanied by minimal text and arrows, intended to give a quickly and clearly understood the main thrust or concept.

Most of infographics that I produced here were used in research papers, graphical abstracts or presentation slides.

Compared to the traditional science illustration, infographics are usually preferred to be simpler in style.

Diagram of

the Science Process

The scientific method is usually shown as linear process, although in actuality it is much more fluid.

This diagram outlines how the process of science works by using bird feeding as an example. This diagram was used as a poster for the BirdSleuth K-12 program at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
