The BetaWorks Team are trialling a number of Infographics of ABS data to demonstrate another means of presenting information to our users. The ABS produces a wide range of statistics and below is an infographic showing statistics for one of the main energy consumers in the Australian household: the humble Washing machine.

The data is sourced from the 4602.0.55.001 - Environmental Issues: Energy Use and Conservation, Mar 2011.


Infographics or Information Graphics are graphic visualisations and representations of information or data. Infographics illustrate information that may seem less interesting or difficult to present in text form and act as a means of displaying information in different and visually pleasing ways to get a message across to a particular audience. Infographics are another form of data visualisation and are all about making difficult concepts easier to understand by presenting them differently.


Your feedback on this development will determine it's success.
