Infographics as an Alternative

  • by Office of Institutional Research at Dartmouth College

While the office routinely uses Tableau dashboards to share data with the campus community, there are also projects where an infographic may be a more visually compelling alternative. The office has invested in two tools for creating infographics as well as books to educate us more fully on graphic design principles and best practices.

Two annual infographics that are reviewed and updated include First Destination results for Career Services (Illustrator) and a compilation of the Fact Book referred to as the Fact Card (Piktochart).
