I’m doing some form of data visualization learning for 180 days because I need to #JFDI. See post explaining how and why I’m doing this.
Reading and Learning Data Visualization Theoretically/Critically:
The Best American Infographics 2014 “Us” & “The Material World” Section p. 84-98
- Combining a cultural symbol (in this case a poppy) and using it as a line element in a graph to show war deaths creates emphasis p. 87
- Using a sunburst and shapes in the sunburst to talk about branching categories (in this case cheese) p. 91
- Heat maps in shapes – keyboards with color hue encodings to describe music p. 97
