How to know the Senate better through data visualization

How to know the Senate better through data visualization | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

"The data on senators’ backgrounds mostly comes from the Bioguide website. We’ve also added campaign finance data from Influence Explorer, and additional data on committee assignments from the the unitedstates project on Github, and ideology data from Voteview. We’ve put it all together so that you can better understand the Senate as a group of 100 individuals, with different backgrounds and different histories and different loyalties."

Data visualisation success hinges on solid storytelling skills

Data visualisation success hinges on solid storytelling skills | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it
Learn more about the value of data visualisation. Tableau's Jock Mackinlay explains why data is inert and worthless without the twin practices of visualisation and storytelling.

 

This is a quick piece that makes some valuable points. Frankly, I'm not a hard-core data head. Yet I love looking at spreadsheets, bar charts, line charts and other visual displays of data in order to make meaning of the material and spot trends. 

 

There is a whole science to displaying data in meaningful ways (see Edward Tufte's work) that we don't need to go into here. But what I like about this article is that it points to the fact that all the data in the world is meaningless until you can tell the story about what it is saying and what it means.

 

Storytelling and data go hand-in-hand.

 

Truly, those of us in the field of business storytelling need to build our data skills. And data-geeks need to develop their storytelling skills. Sounds like a match made in heaven!

 

Here's another aspect of storytelling that this article alludes to: yes, we all know it takes time to share a story and in this fast-paced world, it is not uncommon to hear "But who has the time?! Just give me the data to share. We've got to get moving!"  Ahhhhh -- huge mistake! Taking the time to share a story in the beginning makes projects go much more quickly. 

 

That sounds counter-intuitive, but I experience this phenomenon again and again.

 

Read the article for additional points on how the marriage of data and storytelling make for better decision making. They are worth remembering.
