In Paper 2 you are expected to answer some questions based on an infographic.

An infographic is a collection of imagery, charts, and minimal text that gives an easy-to-understand overview of a topic. They use striking, engaging visuals to communicate information quickly and clearly.

However, with the increase in use of infographics to show information there is tendency towards an increase in bias. The P2 infographics question therefore encourages you to be critical of the data chosen, how it has been presented and for what purposes.

Below you will find an example to help you practise this important IB Geography exam skill.

Consider the following questions:

  1. Who created this infographic?

  2. What is its purpose? (to entertain, inform, persuade?)

  3. What are their sources of data?

  4. Are those sources reliable?

  5. Has the data been presented in the most appropriate way?

  6. How could the representation of data be improved? (colour, symbols, scales, key etc.)
