Day 50 of 180 Days of Data Viz Learning #jfdi

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. 137

Three Takeways:

  • Colored maps plotting data points eg race rather than typical geographic barriers and maps in general under a data viz renaissance p 138
  • Map stack as a tool p 135
  • Using colors in bar charts to represent flow of a narrative p 140
