Data Design: Visualizing Quantities, Locations, Connections
By Per Mollerup
This book is for designers, journalists, editors, writers, and anyone concerned with presenting factual information clearly and effectively.
Data Design is a lively and comprehensive introduction to data visualization illustrated with 199 instructive data displays.
Learns the essential qualities of good data visualization: accuracy, simplicity, and clarity. In this spirit, Danish designer and author Per Mollerup discusses information design with great clarity. The proposed data displays are as simple as possible, and every graphic element is there to convey meaning. This book is not about data decoration.
Data Design can be read from cover to cover, but it doesn't have to be. It can also serve as a reference guide.
Each of the data displays included is explained in such a way as to clarify the problems to be addressed and the method by which to address them, enabling the reader to develop the skills with which to improve their data visualization designs.
