Information Visualization/Abstract Data Visualization

David F. Wiley

Choosing a visualization method that most easily and accurately conveys the meaning of data is not always a complex three-dimensional image. Sometimes, insightful meaning can most easily be conveyed by a simple graph and often interaction through these simple interfaces can greatly increase the understanding of complex data.

Creative means to explain your data involves not just your data but also the implied meaning that you as an expert in your data want to convey to a client or viewer of your data. Interactive information visualizations that allow direct modification can also provide significant improvements in productivity in working with one’s data.
