Description

Data is everywhere, but too often, its presentation is about as interesting as a wet dishrag. I believe that data can be engaging when presented with clarity and style. This talk will discuss the basic principles of good visual design. Along the way, I will present case studies on the good, the bad and the ugly in data visualization. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but excellent visualization of data is priceless.
