Build a great Pictogram and embed or share it

A pictogram, also known as a pictogrid, is a useful way to represent data when you're using icons to quickly show what the category of the information is. It allows information to be visualised and compared in percentages, absolute values or fractions using icons. Pictograms are an engaging way to give an overall view of small sets of discrete data.
