Data Visualization References

Dashboard designers interested in data visualization must browse the amazing list of data visualization references at the Chris Maven blog.

30 minutes spent browsing through the incredibly imaginative world of data depiction gives you a huge degree of respect for the visual arts and the way data can come alive before our eyes.

Here are some favorite blogs on data visualization:

Blog about Stats

Charts & Graphs

Economics – Gallery

Infographics – Making Sense of This Financial Mess!

everything is connected to everything else

Some of this work is simply stunning. In fact, you’ll see clearly that information visualizations are simply too “big” to put on a dashboard. Dashboards have charts and graphs. These infoviz artifacts go way beyond that. They are “dashboards” unto themselves.

    I have to say that the more I look at this, the more I like it. It covers a lot of ground, and and a lot of angles; and I may not agree with every bit of it…but well done!!
    Thank you to the author!!
