A Revolution is Taking Place in How To Visualise Information

Richie Barter | TECHNOLOGY

I wanted to pass on details from an excellent article in the Economist from earlier this month reviewing three recent books on Data Visualisation

A book we are going to read!

What's great about this article is that it describes what we focus on delivering on our client engagements here at Coolgarif Tech: "computer technologies and visual techniques that will depict data at scales and in forms previously unimaginable".

My favourite quote from the article is the following: "Translating data into images allows people to spot patterns, anomalies, proportions and relationships. When done well, it lets the eye create the narrative; people teach themselves, rather than being told".

Based on these reviews I'm going to invest in Data Points: Visualisation That Means Something. Something to read during lunch!
