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 “The Material World” Section p. 99-137
- Using a mix of maps and drawn images as a mixed method seems to one of the most effective at creating compelling visuals in the compilation p 106
- Using line thickenness combined with symbols to add dimension to anotherwise flat linear image (describing tornado strength) p108
- Somber two tone color visuals are most effective at contrast and understanding (drone attacks info graphic) p. 136
