I thought that this chapter was really interesting. Its important to note that data can be portrayed in several different ways, and I didn’t really understand that concept before. I always saw the graphs in my textbooks or online but didn’t really make the correlation of what those graphs actually meant visually. In this chapter it says that “The connection between data and what it represents is key to visualization that means something. It is key to thoughtful data analysis. It is key to a deeper understanding of your data.” As a designer, it is vital for me to extract something of value from those graphics so that when I am asked to produce something visually interesting with the data that I have collected, I will be able to do it efficiently and effectively. It’s all about communication.
