ChartsBin is a nice tool that you can use to create world maps of various different types. It's really up to you, so would be great for history/geography teachers for example. There are a number of charts already available across a wide variety of subject areas, but the main strength is in the creation of the images.

From the website:   www.dipity.com  "Dipity is a free digital timeline website. Our mission is to organize the web's content by date and time. Users can create, share, embed and collaborate on interactive, visually engaging timelines that integrate video, audio, images, text, links, social media, location and timestamps."

There are a fair number of these coming on stream at the moment, such as Timeglider and my personal favourite Meograph. There is a free version for up to 3 timelines, but then it's £££ after that. Looks easy enough to use, though I confess that I haven't tried this one myself. There are lots of examples of the way that people have used it, which was very interesting.

Create and share visual ideas online with easel.ly. It gives you a series of 'vhemes' or visual themes, such as maps, flow charts and so on, with objects you can pull in and resize. Nice and simple, and it would be useful in a wide variety of different situations, not least of which education and/or the production of posters for a library setting.

With rvl.io This is a very simple presentation tool, with the main emphasis being that you can show slides to the right/left and up/down. It would be a useful tool if you were having a fairly free and easy approach to a presentation and were happy to go with the flow of what interested the audience. It was very easy to use, and I created a very simple presentation in a matter of moments. However, until it gets considerable more functionality, it's going to have limited appeal.

If you'd like to get a feel for it, my presentation (of some of my photographs) is here.

A picture is worth a thousand words – based on this, infographics would carry hundreds of thousands of words, yet if you let a reader choose between a full-length 1000-word article and an infographic that needs a few scroll-downs, they'd probably prefer absorbing information straight from the infographic. What's not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles.

While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics. In this article, we're listing more than 20 such options to help you get your messages across to your readers, visually.
