Visualize your Research

Anscombe's quartet, via Wikipedia The Data Visualization Guide covers best practices and useful tools for successful data visualization. Exploratory visualization can help discover patterns in the data that may not be clear from statistics alone.

In addition to supporting a deeper understanding of data patterns, visualization is also a frequent final output of research. Putting some time and thought into data visualization upfront can help you create more effective charts, graphs, and figures. While software and data type may vary by discipline, the underlying concepts of good data visualization are consistent.
