Data visualization is not one solitary discipline
No, data visualization is closer to a collage of knowledge that only when adequately expressed, manifests as universally interpretable language. Of course, even that's wishful thinking. More accurately stated, to properly communicate to one another with abstract forms we need an intimate familiarity with how shapes are perceived by the eyes of our audience. Factor technology into this equation of hopeful communication and you are confronted with yet another domain to master.
For the curious of heart, data visualization provides an overflow well of areas to explore.
Below are some of the resource the team at Viz Simply has used to better understand our audience. We will continue to add to this list as our curiosity continues to get the best of us, so please check in regularly.
