A Truthful Art: Why Visualization Will Become an Universal Language

Presented by

Alberto Cairo, Professor of Visualization and Infographics

About this talk

In the past two decades, visualization has become a language adopted not just by scientists and statisticians, but by journalists, designers, and the public in general. This process has been enabled by an increasing variety of software tools that are sophisticated, easy to use and, in many cases, free. However, knowledge of elementary principles of information presentation has not progressed at the same pace. This webinar will provide an overview of these principles. You will learn: -How to create charts and maps that don't mislead -How to choose appropriate graphic forms to represent your information -How to arrange your graphics to build compelling narratives
