Designing real-time data visualizations is hard: our expectations often miss the mark of reality, and the design of the product suffers. How can we get better at predicting what data will look like, and how can we use those predictions in our designs?
Tiny Data Vizualization
Charts and graphs are a key component of news reporting today, either as corroborating evidence or a visual representation of prose. The trend today is towards large, pre-composed, interactive elements. Tiny, contextual, generative charts can communicate information better than words or even a larger graph could. Using D3 and a few other tools, we can create in-line data visualizations that are theoretically sound and incredibly informative.
