Details about Data Visualisation A Handbook For Data Driven Design 2nd edition
Data Visualisation A Handbook For Data Driven Design PDF free download – The primary challenge one faces when writing a book about data visualisation is to determine what to leave in and what to leave out. Data visualisation is a big subject. There is no single book to rule it all because there is no one book that can truly cover it all. Each and every one of the topics covered by the chapters in this book could (and, in several cases, do) exist as books in their own right. The secondary challenge when writing a book about data visualisation is to decide how to weave the content together. Data visualisation is not rocket science; it is not an especially complicated discipline, though it can be when working on sophisticated topics and with advanced applications. It is, however, a complex subject. There are lots of things to think about, many things to do and, of course, things that will need making. Creative and journalistic sensibilities need to blend harmoniously with analytical and scientific judgement. In one moment, you might be checking the statistical rigour of an intricate calculation, in the next deciding which shade of orange most strikingly contrasts with a vibrant blue. The complexity of data visualisation manifests in how the myriad small ingredients interact, influence and intersect to form a whole.
