Please join us on August 4, 2015 at 9am PDT for our latest Data Science Central Webinar Event: How Do We Know That? An Introduction to Visualization Research sponsored by Tableau.
Pie charts are bad, right? Bar charts are good, but stacked bars aren’t. And there are lots of other things you have probably heard. But how do we know those things? There is a very active research community that is looking into these questions and trying to find out what works and what doesn’t, how well we can see and compare certain things, etc.
In this next DSC Webinar, we will give a brief overview of some of the early roots of visualization research, as well as some of the very fundamental research that has led us to where we are right now. In addition, we will show some of the open questions that we are only starting to address.
