Abstract: Data can be communicated in a wide variety of ways, from transferring a file of raw data between parties to summarizing the key results of a dataset using a few sentences. Somewhere in the middle of that spectrum lies Data Visualization which can allow communicators to explain key points visually, or even allow audiences to explore the data on their own. In this lecture, we’ll break down some of the key concepts to consider when communicating data, a short list of DOs & DON’Ts, and survey a variety of techniques that current practitioners use to effectively communicate data.
