Data visualization is becoming an increasingly common method of presenting large and complex data sets; however, the principles of visual communication are not widely understood or practiced. Data visualization, like any other language, has its own vocabulary and syntax that can be used to more effectively communicate with others using visuals instead of words. This informative class will provide an overview of how data visualizations are constructed, how people tend to understand visual cues like shape and color, and how to use those cues to create visualizations that are both attractive and informative.
