Winds of change – Infographics

November 18, 2017

Winds of change Good quotes on #InfoGraphics: “Visualization is a continuous spectrum that stretches from statistical graphics to #dataart” + “Data journalism, the idea is that reporters must interrogate both people & databases…to get their information.”

For that is what data-visualisations are: a blend of the aesthetic and informational. Having one without the other means producing something that is less useful and enjoyable than it might be, argues Nathan Yau, a statistician who runs a blog called Visualisation is a whole new medium, he writes in his new book, “Data Points”. It is a “continuous spectrum that stretches from statistical graphics to data art”.

“Data Points” is a useful primer for those who need to produce infographics. But for those who merely want to appreciate them, two other books fit the bill, both by Guardian journalists.

In recent years the London-based daily newspaper has promoted a new area called “data journalism”. The idea is that reporters must interrogate both people and databases in order to get their
information. Simon Rogers’s “Facts Are Sacred” is a review of the past few years’ worth of this data journalism on the paper’s website. It brings together some of its best projects and explains how they were done.
