DMAW Digital Day Forum Follow-ups

I just want to say thank you for everyone who attended my sessions at the DMAW Digital Day Forum today.

Here’s a summary of some of the things we talked about:

  • A good data visualization shows the big picture, but let’s you also see the small details.
  • A good infographic helps to make simple a complicated concept.
  • A good data visualization asks users to find themselves within the visualization.

Here are some of the tools I talked about:

  • D3.js – A JavaScript Framework that allows you to create data visualizations.
  • Tableau – Business Intelligence Software that does some great visualizations.
  • Piktochart –  A neat little online tool that lets you make your own infographics.

Here are the visualizations we looked at:
