Visual representations of data are powerful tools of scholarly communication. However, extensive research shows that they are not always used with sufficient functionality. This lecture and follow-up workshop will focus on the basic principles and rules of data visualization and their application. The lesson will focus on data visualization foundations and concepts, such as data-ink ratio, chartjunk or memorability. We will dive shortly into relevant cognitive science topics, such as pre-attentive processing or memory. We’ll then focus on reflecting these principles in real-world dataviz examples during the workshop.
