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
- 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
