Four Pillars of Visualization

By Noah | Add a comment | 

Please enjoy content based on my Four Pillars of Visualization design principles. I hope you find it useful. The best way to reach me to provide errata and feedback is on twitter.

The Four Pillars are:

  1. Purpose (the why)
  2. Content (the what)
  3. Structure (the how)
  4. Formatting (everything else)

Here are the resources. I’ll update this page as new material comes online. Everything is free.

Video of my sameAs talk in London

By Noah | Add a comment | 

This is the video of the talk I gave at sameAs in London on March 28th. It’s about 15 minutes, and is a lighthearted look at good and bad visualization techniques and designs. The audience was about 130 geeks with pints; my slides were being controlled for me. Many thanks to @Kaythaney for inviting me to speak. Enjoy!
