Pictographs, also called pictorial graphs, are a variation of a bar graph, but instead of using bars they use symbols to illustrate quantity. The symbols may or may not realistically correspond with the quantities that they illustrate. Although pictographs have visual appeal, they cannot accurately represent exact numbers such as those with decimals and fractions. Symbols used within a pictograph should all be the same size and should be spaced equally apart. Be sure to include a key which describes the quantity represented by each symbol.
