How can we create beautiful and informative data visualizations that everyone understands?

How can we create beautiful and informative data visualizations that everyone understands? | COMPUTATIONAL THINKING and CYBERLEARNING |

We have more data available to us than ever before and in an increasingly visual world, audiences look to images to make sense of things. We must refine how we present information visually in order to better inform audiences and ourselves.

There are many tools available to make data visualizations, but the tools and the visualizations alone are not enough. We need to enlighten users by guiding them through the complexity, using stories and design. In this exploding landscape of many visual data forms, multimedia and interactivity, we need to create content not only for our “super users,” but also actively help our larger audience understand them...

What Is Visualization?


This seems like a straightforward question, but it’s proven to be a difficult one to answer. Even visualization researchers don’t have a clear definition.


Is it synonymous with information graphics? Does visualization have to be computer generated? Does data have to be involved, or can it be abstract? The answers vary depending on who you ask.


Visualization is a medium. It’s not just an analysis tool nor just a way to prove a point more clearly through data.


Visualization is like books. There are different writing styles and categories, there are textbooks and there are novels, and they communicate ideas in different ways for varied purposes. And just like authors who use words to communicate, there are rules that you should always follow and others that are guidelines that you can bend and break...

De très nombreux exemples d'infographies, malheureusement pas toujours aboutis. A croiser avec d'autres infographies ou représentations sur des sujets identiques ou bien à rapprocher des données sources.
