Infographics and data visualization – Online storytelling tools

Have you ever read on online story where the information was presented in an such an innovative way that you just stare at the screen in awe?

Here is a list of my favourite sites and tools for making digital storytelling awesome!

  • How they did it – Part one – Spotting storytelling tools in the wild – Great piece on using interactive maps from medium.com
  • Easel.ly – Love this site! Easily create infographics using templates and icons. The free version has enough backgrounds and graphics to get you started and you can upload your own pics too. This is a basic graphic I made this week.blue
  • Infogr.am is a great tool for incorporating data into graphics.More than 30 charts types to choose from.
  • Picktochart is a site that is similar to Easel.ly – Free and tons of templates to choose from.
