Creating Effective Graphs


Data visualization is one of the most important data skills. By improving your abilities to understand and draw plots, you dramatically increase your ability to communicate with data.

In this session, you'll learn key principles of data visualization, from understanding which plot to draw in common situations, to design techniques to improve your audience's comprehension.

The instructor is Naomi B Robbins, a legend in the world of data visualization. Naomi has trained thousands of people in data visualization skills (including your host, Richie Cotton).

Key Takeaways:

  • The most common graph forms are not necessarily the most effective.
  • Consider readers with color vision deficiencies.
  • Dot plots are often a useful alternative.
  • Small multiples are another useful alternative.
