Wired has produced an excellent piece on what makes a good (and bad) infographic.

some excerpts:

"An information graphic, is designed to convey a huge set of data in a fraction of the time that it takes to wade through a dense, numbers-heavy paragraph. The best ones are also entertaining."

"Creating an effective infographic is much more difficult than just arranging a few charts around a cartoon character. It requires graphic designers to tap into their inner data analyst and journalist — to crunch numbers and craft a convincing narrative. Few have all these skills at their fingertips."
