The software center is a tool which allows you to view all software packages held in the ubuntu repository in a graphical user interface. It's the utility which looks like this:

On the other hand, installation by command line uses tools such as apt-get install to install packages. While the same packages are found in the command line installation utilities and the software center, the use of the terminal allows packages to be installed in situations like on servers where GUI's aren't present.
