Visual.ly promises to be THE site for creating, sharing and exploring great visualizations. Bold statement. Sounds great!
The above punchline includes ”Create”. Will visual.ly be an online tool to CREATE visualizations? I am eager to see as the promo video does not include creating vizualisations and if yes, how? At one point the video only talks about exploring, sharing and promoting.
They say: Story + Data + Design = Vizualization. Makes sense.
I only wonder, whether data visualisation and infographics the very same thing as it seems that visual.ly is putting it. I would say that:
Infographics = 40% Story + 20% Data + 40% Design
Data vizualisation = 20% Story + 50% Data + 30% Design
Same elements but different proportions.
Let’s see, what visual.ly will provide when the curtains unfold!
