How Intentions Changed How People Read the Same Map (The Process #60)

Visualization has a way of making things feel more concrete and definite. “The shapes and colors are backed by data and I can see it all with my own eyes!” But as we continue to see, data can say a lot of things, even if it’s the same dataset. Even the same visualization can say different things to different people.

The Process is a weekly newsletter on how visualization tools, rules, and guidelines work in practice. I publish every Thursday. Get it in your inbox or read it on FlowingData.

You also gain unlimited access to hundreds of hours worth of step-by-step visualization courses and tutorials, which will help you make sense of data for insight and presentation. Resources include source code and datasets so that you can more easily apply what you learn in your own work.

Your support keeps the rest of FlowingData open and assures the data keeps flowing freely.
