Benefits of Visualized Data 6 ● Data in a visual context has its significance becomes clearer. ● Patterns, trends and correlations that might go undetected in text-based data can be recognized. ● It helps you make sense of data. ● Reduced time to insight (three from Ryan Sleeper) ● Improved accuracy ● Higher audience engagement
  7. 7. Why Visualizing Works There are too many words here but I’m doing it anyway. 7 “The human visual system is a pattern seeker of enormous power and subtlety. “The eye and the visual cortex of the brain form a massively parallel processor that provides the highest-bandwidth channel into human cognitive centers. “At higher levels of processing, perception and cognition are closely interrelated, which is the reason why the words "understanding" and "seeing" are synonymous. “However, the visual system has its own rules. We can easily see patterns presented in certain ways, but if they are presented in other ways, they become invisible. Following perception-based rules, we can present data in such a way that the important and informative patterns stand out.” Stephen Few, Tapping the Power of Visual Perception

Limit colors to two or a few for the whole viz (i.e., brand colors) 3. Be aware of red / green color blindness (6% of men) 4. Pass the visual squint test (be readable for the real world) 5. Keep it simple 6. Focus on your audience
