The article says that we can make quantitative data to a graph. The first part of reading, it says about graphical display – pros and cons, etc. Graphical display is not always effective and efficient. The array of irrelevant data cannot be a good graph, no matter how fancy it is. The article used ‘Solar radiation and stock prices’ graph as an example.
Choose one of the images from the reading.
– I chose the graph of ‘stomach cancer, white females; age-adjusted by country,1950-1969’.
What is working about the image?
– We can see the density of white female with cancer nationwide.
Is there anything unnecessary or any information you think is missing?
– I think it could be very helpful if it has population density of female so that we can make a comparison.
Have you seen any designs where you’re paying more attention to the aesthetics than the information?
