The Data Visualization Sketchbook

First Edition


April 2019 | 136 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The Data Visualization Sketchbook, the latest addition to bestselling author Stephanie D.H. Evergreen’s arsenal of data viz tools, provides advice on getting started with sketching and offers tips, guidance, and completed sample sketches for a number of reporting formats including a project page, graphs, dashboards, a one-page handout, slide design, and a report structure. Dr. Evergreen shows how sketching gives people the space to think through not just an individual graphic, but how several graphics could fit together in a composition when creating drafts for infographics and dashboards. The book comprises seven complete sets of report templates for you to sketch in and plan your own reporting, and it includes full-color qualitative and quantitative "Chart Choosers.” This must-have sketchbook helps readers realize mistakes, find solutions quickly, and report data by methods that keep audiences engaged and informed.
