It is possible to design such complex figure using tikz and if possible then how because I know connect the lines but there so many links and where to find images of the nodesenter image description here

  • Yes it is possible. However if you don't come around with a concrete question about where exactly you're stuck (showing what you have tried already), chances are no one will help you. "Do this for me" questions aren't typically well received.

    Btw.: The question "Is XY possible with TikZ" almost always has the answer "yes" :)

  • You could have a look at \usetikzlibrary{mindmap} and adopt it somehow. Here is a nice example: texample.net/tikz/examples/servers

    You can find many similar looking symbols in fontawesome. They can be put in nodes and connected.

This is a start. You can use symbols from e.g. fontawesome, define some styles for the nodes and pins and use positioning to relatively position these nodes.

\begin{tikzpicture}[c/.style={circle,node font=\Large},
    every pin edge/.style={bend left},
    every pin/.style={align=center},
    node distance=1em]
 \node[b,pin=left:Camera \& security] (camera) {\rotatebox{200}{\faVideoCamera}};
 \node[b,w,below=of camera,xshift=1ex,pin=left:{Connected\\ Vehicles}] (car) {\faCar};
 \node[r,w,below=of car,xshift=-1.5ex,pin=below left:Retail Industry] 
    (industry) {\faShoppingBasket};
 \node[r,w,right=of camera,yshift=1ex,pin=above left:Smart Cities] (cities) {\faBuildingO}; 
 \node[cloud, draw,below right=of cities, aspect=2,align=center] {Blockchain};
 \draw (camera) -- (car) -- (industry); 

enter image description here

  • To the downvoter: what is your problem with this post? Or is it just a random downvote because, say, you do not want such questions to get any answers?
