I found this video on the value of data visualization and I thought it was a great introductory video to the topic. It gets interesting around 0:27. However, after 1:10, I felt that it was getting into the glitzy aspect of data visualization. A good example of this was the use of soda bottles in lieu of simple bars to show distribution. In any case, it’s definitely worth a watch.

We get so caught up in the technical challenges of data management that we forget that it’s just as critical to properly represent data. Hopefully, this gives everyone a good idea why it is so important.
