If a picture truly is worth 1,000 words, then, I hope my professor forgives me for exceeding the prescribed length for this post.

Images, as the expression suggests, can pack a lot of meaning into a small space. This, and that the brain can generally process images quicker than it can text, are why information visualizations are so effective, particularly for illustrating relationships, as the three below do. Even though they’re not labeled, with a little thinking, you can probably guess what’s being conveyed.
