At Project Evident, we often work with organizations that struggle to present the data they collect in a way that makes sense to the intended audience. Data Visualization can be an important tool for these organizations, as they move toward building support and capacity, and need to present technical data to varied audiences.
For those those who are familar with the R programming language, From Data to Viz provides an invaluable service. Built by Yan Holtz and Conor Healy, the website is devoted to assisting practitioners with choosing the correct presentation format - based upon input data, and provides guiding snippets for use in building out individual data visualizations.
In this piece, common pitfalls that occur as people learn how to effectively visualize their data - and how to avoid them are cataloged.
