Data visualization is a general term to describe any effort to help people understand the significance of data by putting it in a visual context. Important stories live in our data, and data visualization is a powerful way to discover, understand, and share these stories with others. Conveying the meaning behind the story is most effective when the information is easily and rapidly grasped by our eyes so that our brains can readily understand. Executing this process effectively is much more a science than an art, and requires an understanding of how human perception works. Join Silvia in this journey where we will walk through how our brains decode information and how we can leverage perceptual principles to create meaningful graphical interfaces between people and data.
