Register for 12/6 TAA Webinar, ‘Using Visual Display Techniques to Engage Readers’
Join us Tuesday, December 6 from 2-3 p.m. ET for the TAA Webinar, Picture This: Using Visual Display Techniques to Engage Readers. Presenter Dr. Kim Mogilevsky, founding member and CEO of Analytic Orange, will share insight into how visual-display techniques impact a reader’s perception and cognition of information and explore several ways to create and display data in exciting, interesting, and engaging formats.
The old English idiom ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ is something that many people can agree with. However, data-journalist and information designer David McCandless argued that while a picture has the potential to tell a story, a good “picture” has four elements: information, function, visual form, and a story. If one or more of those elements are missing, the visualization is not as helpful or interesting.
