Take Aways: Clever Data Visualization for Everyone

Some people just see a bunch of numbers. Few succeed in getting their visualization straight. And how do you turn a story into a chart type? Teresa Kubacka shared amazingly simple tips to do just that during the Open Hub Day by ImpactHub Zurich.

Slides

Take Aways

1

Humans are bad at interpreting abstract numbers, so it is important to use visual communication to deliver the message

2

Data can be encoded as many different visual features, not only as bars and points

3

Finding a story in the data is an exploratory process that requires many iterations

4

First think about the story you want to say, and only then pick the right chart or visual representation

5

As long as the representation is truthful, there is no absolutely “right” or “wrong” way to tell a data story – there is always a component of individual creativity
