This course will focus on design principles for effective communication of quantitative data with visual representations. Data visualization is an increasingly important strategy for statistical collaboration, allowing the data to provide insight on its own. More flexible tools for data visualization have been developed recently, and these will be introduced. Topics include motivation for visualization, types of visualization, human perception and its impact on design, use of color, graphical integrity, and an introduction to visualization software.
