The definition of data visualization
Background: Kirk (2016) defines data visualization as “The representation and presentation of data to facilitate understanding.” In this course, we will be learning about the individual pieces of Kirk’s definition.
Reference: Kirk, Andy. Data Visualisation: A Handbook for Data Driven Design (p. 50). SAGE Publications.
Assignment: Discuss and expand on the 4 components of Kirk’s definition with regards to visualizations:
Your research paper should be at least 3 pages (and at least 800 words), double-spaced, have at least 4 APA references, and typed in an easy-to-read font in MS Word (other word processors are fine to use but save it in MS Word format). Your cover page should contain the following: Title, Student’s name, University’s name, Course name, Course number, Professor’s name, and Date.
In Chapter 1, the author provides us a definition of data visualization: “The representation and presentation of data to facilitate understanding” (Kirk, 2016). The following three stages are required to understand data visualization:
- Perceiving: what can I see?
- Interpreting: what does it mean?
- Comprehending: what does it mean to me?
