www.visual-literacy.org has published 'A Periodic Table of Methods'. You can see this amazing table at: http://www.visual-literacy.org/periodic_table/periodic_table.html?goback=%2Egde_80552_member_5798121348945432579#%21
Let's take a tour of this table, discuss the advantages and limits for the different types of data visualizations. Maybe we'll even try to identify the cream of the crop - the ones that we think work best or are easiest for a reader to understand.
ASSIGNMENT: Look at the Periodic Table and pick 3 types of data visualizations that, for you, work really well. Pick 3 more that you think would be hard to build or hard for a reader to understand.
