Practical steps for improving visualisation

Here’s a useful resource for anyone involved in data journalism and visualising the results. ‘Dataviz‘ – a site for “improving data visualisation in the public sector” – features a step by step guide to good visualisation, as well as case studies and articles.

Clicking through those themes takes you through some of the questions to ask of the data, taking you to a gallery of visualisation possibilities.
