What make something an infographic?
Are they really different than visualizations?
Infographics are laid out by hand
Visualizations are machine created
(though they can be touched up afterwards)
Info
Infographics are
visually rich
Visualizations
are simple
and to the point
A completed
infographic
can be hard
to modify
Visualizations
can update
on a consistent
schedule
The relationship between them
is recursive, with visualizations 
often being embedded in infographics
But clarity about the differences and similarities is
critical to the overall goal of communicating your data
