Data Visualization

What is data visualization?

In his book The Truthful Art, visualization expert Alberto Cairo writes that a good data visualization is “reliable information, visibly encoded so relevant patterns become noticeable, organized in a way that enables at least some exploration when it’s appropriate, and presented in an attractive manner, but always remembering that honesty, clarity, and depth come first” (p. 12).
