What Is a Pictograph?

Pictographs, also known as pictograms, are pictorial representations of data using images, icons, or symbols. A pictograph can represent the frequency of data using symbols or images that are relevant to the data. It is one of the simplest ways to represent data.

How to Make a Pictograph?

  • Collect the data of the different categories you want to represent with your pictograph. Then form a table to list them in, using Creately’s intuitive table.
  • Review the data and select a symbol: review the collected data and then select a symbol or picture that accurately represents your data.
  • Assign a key; based on the frequency of the data that is collected you can decide the frequency for one symbol. Set a numerical value that one symbol will represent. A key or numerical value must accompany the pictograph.
  • Create the pictograph by creating two columns using Creately’s table feature that represents the category and the data. Then, use the symbols representing the frequencies. These symbols can be drawn as fractions as well if the frequency is not a whole number or based on the key.
  • Review your pictograph. Make sure the labeling and pictograph accurately represent the data.
