Product description

Data visualization is an efficient and effective medium for communicating large amounts of information. But the design process can often seem like an unexplainable creative endeavor. This book aims to demystify the design process for those who are already comfortable with data analysis, showing the reader how to encode information visually via a linear process of decision-making.
