Those of us who visualize data for a living spend a good amount of time thinking about the style, format, and structure for our data. Then there are those, most people, who don’t care. They just want results delivered or a chart to read, and it doesn’t matter to them if your solution is beautiful or elegant or the best visual metaphor for the dataset. Message not medium sort of thing.

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.
