Analyzing Graphics Post

Instructional Graphics:

This instructional graphic is giving instructions on how to tie a tie. It is an info graph with no videos, just pictures of steps to tie a tie. It is very easy to navigate because it is just one picture with 6 steps. There is no clicking on anything or watching a video, it’s all in one picture. For someone who doesn’t know how to tie a tie, it would be a little confusing to follow because you can’t really tell which piece is which.

Narrative Simulation:

This simulation explains that Google and many other devices track everything you do on the Internet or on your phone. You can’t do anything without someone or something tracking you. It is very easy to understand because it is a video. You just have to watch the video and pay attention to it. This simulation is very easy to understand because of it just being a video, If you don’t know what some of the words mean it may be a little confusing.

Data Visualization:

This Piktochart, or Data Visualization, shows us that idling your car is a total waste of money and gas compared to just turning it off. It is very easy to navigate because it is a picture of just enough information and facts to back up their story. If you have an 8-cylinder engine size, every 16 minutes you idle your car, you could save around $230. When you are just sitting in your car it is better to just turn your car off and restart it when ready, rather thank idling it and keeping it running while sitting there. I liked the overall visual story of this pictograph because it was very entertaining and amusing to see how much money and gas people waste by idling their car.
