Figures & tables
Figures (diagrams, graphs, maps and photographs) and tables (representations of numerical data in a grid format) should be used to enhance what you write, not repeat it or stand separate from it. Detailed results, statistical analysis, transcripts and more detailed diagrams should go in the appendices.
Different types of figures and tables fulfil different functions. You should always choose the most appropriate type of illustration for your purpose.
