Infographics are very linear 

If people understood how to use Prezi, graphics could be much better.

A powerful infographic can be entered from anywhere, point of interest without giving a linear point of interest. 

Kyle: Prezi- non linear presentation application which is used to create an app. Can make users dizzy. 

Able to add three dimensional depth

Visually.com an example of places to look at infographics. 

Box Jelly: Maps are so concrete as opposed to charts. Maps are set, can’t change streets.  Suggest to use Illustrator, color-coding, guides to make it easier to read. 

Graphic designers use photoshop, create things differently from a code designer. 

Tools are important but the basics are what you really need to understand.
