A Early written symbols were based on pictographs (pictures which resemble what they signify) and ideograms (symbols which represent ideas). Ancient Chinese, Sumerian, and Eg…yptian civilizations began to use such symbols over 5000 years ago, developing them into logographic writing systems around the third millennium BCE. Pictographs are still in use as the main medium of written communication in some non-literate cultures in Africa, The Americas, and Oceania. Pictographs are often used as simple, pictorial, representational symbols by most contemporary cultures.Ojibwa pictographs on cliff-face at Agawa Rock, Lake Superior Provincial Park Pictographs can often transcend languages in that they can communicate to speakers of a number of tongues and language families equally effectively, even if the languages and cultures are completely different. This is why road signs and similar pictographic material are often applied as global standards expected to be understood by nearly all. Pictographs can also take the form of diagrams to represent statistical data by pictorial forms, and can be varied in color, size, or number to indicate change. Pictographs can be considered an art form, and are designated as such in Pre-Columbian art, Native American art, and Painting in the Americas before Colonization. One example of many is the Rock art of the Chumash people, part of the Native American history of California. In 2011, UNESCO World Heritage adds to its list a new site "Petroglyphs Complexes of the Mongolian Altai, Mongolia" to celebrate the importance of the pictograms engraved in rocks. Some scientists in the field of neuropsychiatry and neuropsychology, such as Prof. Dr. Mario Christian Meyer, are studying the symbolic meaning of indigenous pictograms and petroglyphs, aiming to create new ways of communication between native people and modern scientists to safeguard and valorize their cultural diversity. Modern usePictographs remain in common use today, serving as pictorial, representational signs, instructions, or statistical diagrams. Because of their graphical nature and fairly realistic style, they are widely used to indicate public toilets, or places such as airports and train stations. A standard set of pictographs was defined in the international standard ISO 7001: Public Information Symbols. Another common set of pictographs are the laundry symbols used on clothing tags and chemical hazard labels. Pictographic writing as a modernist poetic technique is credited to Ezra Pound, though French surrealists accurately credit the Pacific Northwest American Indians of Alaska who introduced writing, via totem poles, to North America. Contemporary artist Xu Bing created Book from the Ground, a universal language made up of pictograms collected from around the world. A Book from the Ground chat program has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally. There is a Book from the Ground Wiki currently in development that needs public participation in development. The wiki will be a continually growing database of pictogram used in the chat program
A picture representing a word or idea, a hieroglyph. Or, a pictorial representation of numerical data or relationships, especially a graph, but having each value represented b…y a proportional number of pictures
It is something that conveys its meaning through its pictorial resemblence to a physical object
its a picture graph
for a long time it was painting and catholic churches outlawed anything else after a long period of time they let other types of art back

Networks, such as the Nielson Company, pay a certain amount of people (5000) a small amount each month to plug a special box into their TV, which is loaded with a cable an…d modem. This allows the company to monitor what people are watching and based on how many people watch, set the percentage of viewers who watch that particular show. For example, if 500 people watched LOST, then 10% of ALL household owners watch LOST. If you took statistics, you'll know that this method is very inaccurate. Other than that, there is no sure way a television network can know how many people are watching. Don't believe everything you see on TV. Unless--!--Maybe---Each tv set sold,as most such item's,having a serial number,thus show's who is the individual owner. A "hidden" module in the set relay's viewer information back to video media electronic libraries.Owner would not "need" to be known for a simple numerical quantity reference.On the other hand,if there be a "chip" in the viewer's "noodule",Reaction's of the individual to the various presentation's could also be recorded.(social Protective And Betterment Service's device)Thus one could "dream" of life in the Land Of The Great "one-way mirror" offering,in addition to other thing's,fully consumating "one -way trip's" to an endless vacation land.---This all started as I read an article about "tribble's and some Klingon item's from that "other" world.The intricate "glyph" business in their lingo seemed a bit too complicated. It's just that I felt some sympathy for Patrick McGoohan in The Prisoner.--Alias-?---(may have actually been McGooglehan)--Now that the world seem's to have become "The Village"---who can tell ?? TV ratings are determined by estimating the total audience size (that is, everyone watching TV), and breaking down the proportions of different demographics: age, gender, ethnicity, political affiliation, education, income level, geographic location, etc. Different companies use various methods to determine what audience watched what show, and for how long. Phone surveys are often used (they call a lot of people and ask them what they watched, whether they liked it, and then a bunch of questions about their age, income level, etc. They make statistical results (spreadsheets, etc) showing what groups and subgroups watched what. Others will pre-select (generally paid) volunteers to track what they watch. This pre-screened group will fill out their various demographic category lists (a certain proportion of each category to represent the same proportion of that category in the TV watching population; For example, if 8.5% of the nation's TV watching people are male, aged 18-25, high school graduates making $25-50,000/year income and living in the New England area, then they make sure that right around 8.5% of their pre-screened test group fit in that category). The Ratings company will typically have their test group keep a detailed journal of their viewing habits, or may have a recording device attached to the TV to track the time and channel being viewed (the famous A.C. Neilson Co. has used both methods for its test groups, known as Neilson Families). These are estimates, of course, and often phone and internet surveys are used to verify the numbers are accurate. Generally, the statistics are reasonably close, though rarely spot-on. Basic trends are usually represented, though: more people viewing a show than a month ago, more people watching the new episode of Lost than the Cops reruns, etc. New factors come up all the time, and are slowly considered as part of the whole picture: for example, the use of VCR's to view a show later had started being tracked, and, more recently, DVR's. All these numbers determine viewership of different shows, which determine what the broadcast stations can charge advertisers for showing their commercials (i.e., how much money the broadcasters make).
People With a negative attitude. Some one who always likes to start problems.
What is the label on the vertical axis of the pictograph representing numbers of people speaking different languages?
