Hello World! About VizFix

Hello World!

Welcome to the first post on VizFix.  I thought this would be a great way to study the nuances of Data Visualizations.  This will largely be done through case studies where I’ll break down what was done well, what can be approved, and then attempt to improve them.  I’ll also discuss interesting articles and thoughts about data visualization that I came across.  Through these case studies, my hope is that it leads us (you, me) produce better data visualizations.

Better is a relative term, and the first thing I plan to do is create a an evaluation rubric to be used in all of the case studies.  Stay tuned.

This is my semester project for INFO-I590 Data Visualization at Indiana University‘s School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering taught by Professor Yong-Yeol “YY” Ahn.  I am currently a Data Science Masters candidate at IU.
