 +====== Visualization and Data Presentation ======
 +Communicating your findings to an audience is a critical part of science. This lecture is about this communication process and in particular about how to present your data with tables and graphs. We discuss the basic anatomy and different types of charts and tables, when to use which, some common mistakes and how to use color.
 +You can download the presentation slides {{:public:rem4:rem4-16:visualization_presentation2016.pdf|here}}.
 +The lecture refers to RM chapter 16, as well as [[|Edward R. Tufte]]'s general theory of graphics display put forth in his book "The Visual Display of Quantitative Information" (VDQI). 
 +Below are some extra resources.
 +Some websites on charts:
 +  * [[]]

 +  * UCSD Prof. James Hollan's 2013 [[|Information Visualization Seminar]] on VDQI and Tufte's "Envisioning Information" book. A lot of the links are dead, but especially check out the [[|discussions]].
 +  * Prof. Karen Thompson (University of Idaho)'s presentation slides on [[|Data Visualization Theory]] contrast Tufte and Nigel Holmes.
 +  * Jen Underwood's presentation slides on [[|Data Visualization Best Practices]] provide a different perspective and lots of links to resources.
