“Having the Data is not enough” – Visualization Techniques

I do love good visualization. I think animations like this, accompanied by a good story, would serve us well from conference presentations to convincing industry clients.

It is from the “Joy of Stats,” on the BBC (which I’m apparently not allowed to watch due to my location.)

  1. I have followed Hans Rosling’s work through the Gapminder Foundation http://www.gapminder.org/ and what amazes me the most from their projects is how complete the stories told are and the different perspectives of analysis that they encourage (chronological, developing vs. developed, etc).

    In my organization we are undertaking a major infoviz effort with QlikView, a tool that lets us go from data to analysis really fast.
