The best visualizations impart this understanding intuitively. Viewers comprehend the data immediately without thinking. This frees viewers to more fully consider the implications of the data: the stories it tells, the insights it reveals, or even the warnings it offers. If you’re developing websites or web applications today, there’s a good chance you have data to communicate data best presented in a good visualization. But how do you know what kind of visualization is appropriate? And even more importantly, how do you actually create one? In the chapters that follow, we explore dozens of different visualizations, techniques, and toolkits. Each example discusses the appropriateness of the visualization (and suggests possible alternatives) and provides step-by-step instructions for adding the visualization to your web pages. This book won’t teach you how to design data visualizations. Quite honestly, there are other authors far better qualified than me for that (Edward Tufte, for example). Instead, this book will focus on implementing visualizations. When appropriate, I’ll take a slightly bigger picture view to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of particular visualization strategies, but the main goal is to show you how to create a wide range of visualizations. (I recognize that sometimes the boss absolutely insists on a pie chart.)
