Book Details

One of the most influential data visualization books-updated with new techniques, technologies, and examples. Visualize This demonstrates how to explain data visually, so that you can present and communicate information in a way that is appealing and easy to understand. Today, there is a continuous flow of data available to answer almost any question. Thoughtful charts, maps, and analysis can help us make sense of this data. But the data does not speak for itself. As leading data expert Nathan Yau explains in this book, graphics provide little value unless they are built upon a firm understanding of the data behind them. Visualize This teaches you a data-first approach from a practical point of view. You’ll start by exploring what your data has to say, and then you’ll design visualizations that are both remarkable and meaningful. With this book, you’ll discover what tools are available to you without becoming overwhelmed with options. You’ll be exposed to a variety of software and code and jump right into real-world datasets so that you can learn visualization by doing. You’ll learn to ask and answer questions with data, so that you can make charts that are both beautiful and useful. Visualize This also provides you with opportunities to apply what you learn to your own data.
