Visualizing Data Best Practices

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We all generate and are surrounded by data, but what good is it if it cannot be interpreted correctly?  Poor visualization design can lead to confusion, dismissal of information, and even worse...bad decisions.  This presentation will provide you with best practices on how to turn that data into understandable/actionable information.  We will review content from Edward Tufte's (known as a pioneer in data visualization) seminar on "Presenting Data and Information", where he explains how a map drawn in 1869 used some of the best practices in data visualization-demonstrating that content and design is more important than the tool used to visualize the data.
