Day 61 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:

Reading Nathan Yau’s book Data Points – Visualization that Means Something

p. 45-58 Analysis and Exploration

Three Takeaways

  • Don’t blindly follow design suggestion for visualizations -> consider your goals and all possible applications p. 45
  • Check out Treemap, Imageplot, and JS Infovis sometime p. 53
  • Inverted stack area chart might be a cool application for something at work p. 47
