Data Visualization 101: Key Tips and Tricks to Help Your Data Become Actually Useful Information Through Visualizations
Maybe you’ve seen one of those graphs that takes a diploma in cryptography to understand (or at least one that you need the original creator to explain a time or two before you really grasp what it means -ahem…  pareto…-). Powerful visualizations are those that require very little (or no) explaining, and that quickly and effectively portray the intended information behind the data. We’ll take a deep dive into the good, the bad, and the ugly of data visualizations, and leave you with a set of tools you can use to successfully tell a story with your data.
