Create visualizations that are right for your data
When we speak of visualizing data, we must keep in mind that any representation of data other than simple text is indeed visualization. But not all visualizations are suited to all forms of data.
Bar, column, and line charts; scorecards and key performance indicators; network maps; tables; and custom graphics drawn by an illustrator are all visualization techniques that, when used appropriately, will convey the meaning of data. In this full-color book, you’ll discover the different visualization types and, more importantly, learn how to choose and create one based on the data you have.
