Getting ready for my Data Science class (starting next week!) I am updating my data visualization library, looking for resources to help students learn about visualization.
Last week I asked Twitter to help me find resources, especially new ones. Here’s the thread. Thank you to everyone who responded!
I’ll try to summarize and organize the responses. I am mostly interested in books and web pages about visualization, rather than examples of it or tools for doing it.
There are lots of good books; to impose some order, I put them in three categories: newer work, the usual suspects, and moldy oldies.
The following are some newer books (or at least new to me).
Fundamentals of Data Visualization, by Claus O. Wilke (online preview of a book forthcoming from O’Reilly)
Data Visualization: A practical introduction Kieran Healy (free online draft)
Dear Data by Giorgia Lupi, Stefanie Posavec
The following are more established books that appear on most lists.
The Truthful Art: Data, Charts, and Maps for Communication by Alberto Cairo
Interactive Data Visualization for the Web by Scott Murray
Storytelling with Data: A Data Visualization Guide for Business Professionals by Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic
Designing Data Visualizations: Representing Informational Relationships by Noah Iliinsky, Julie Steele
Visualization Analysis and Design by Tamara Munzner
Data Points: Visualization That Means Something by Nathan Yau
The Visual Display of Quantitative Information by Edward R. Tufte
The Elements of Graphing Data by William S. Cleveland
Websites and blogs
Again, I mostly went for sites that are about visualization, rather than examples of it.
