Every picture tells a story
Visualization is the graphic presentation of data -- think of the familiar map of the New York City subway system, or a diagram of the human brain. In this book, two dozen experts reveal how to create aesthetic designs that reveal complex information at a glance. These experts approach their projects from a variety of perspectives -- as artists, designers, commentators, scientists, analysts, statisticians, and more. Together, they demonstrate how visualization can help us make sense of the world.
* Explore the importance of storytelling with a simple visualization exercise
* Learn how color conveys information that our brains recognize before we’re fully aware of it
* Discover how the books we buy and the people we associate with reveal clues to our deeper selves
* Recognize a method to the madness of air travel with a visualization of civilian air traffic
* Find out how researchers investigate unknown phenomena, from initial sketches to published papers
