This week we watched a short video on how storytelling and the aims of data visualization go hand in hand. The narrator of the video discusses the aims of data visualization. The narrator states that the aims of data visualization is to, “Maximize how quickly and accurately people decode information from graphics.” The narrator also talks about some shortcomings (disadvantage) of the techniques used to create data visualization for storytelling. Select and discuss one of the mentioned shortcomings. Then discuss what we have learned in this course that can assist with overcoming your selected shortcoming.
Remember your initial post on the main topic should be posted by Thursday 11:59 PM (EST). Your 2 following posts should be commenting on your classmates’ post on different days by Sunday 11:59 PM (EST). You should end the week with 3 total discussion posts.
A quality post is more than stating, “I agree with you.” Maybe you should state why you agree with your classmate’s post. Additionally, post some examples or find a related topic on the internet or University’s library and comment on it in the discussion post.
