Day 172 of 180 Days of Data Viz Learning #jfdi #dataviz

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:

Three Takeaways Today
  • “Designers speak of objects as having affordances- characteristics that reveal how they’re supposed to be used and make them easy to use in those ways.  A teapot has a handle.  A door that you need to push has a push-plate.  The design of an object should, in and of itself suggest how the object should be used.” p 5
  • Don’t forget about reference lines p 6
  • Tables and graphs in quant biz data have four uses: analyzing, communicating, monitoring, planning, be cognizant of what you’re working on and  the goal p 10
