Visual analysis is an iterative process that exploits the power of the human visual system to help people work with all kinds of data. When data is big, people must overcome the challenges of wide data, tall data and data from multiple sources. In this talk, Dr. Mackinlay will describe how people working with data can address these challenges. The key technique is to use multiple coordinated views of data during visual analysis and storytelling with data.

Great presentation giving some good examples of Tableau in action as well as some good points about optimal visualization. The small section at the end about the challenges of extracting the data used for the examplesis actually really good and something that marks it out from the typical sales demos. Highly recommended.
