About this item

This book covers data vetting and visualization in a vernacular designed for the communications professional – replacing the usual geeky jargon and code lists with context and meaningful data sets. Each chapter serves as a case study on a different professional: an economist, a government budget manager, a public health official and an environmental scientist. By shadowing people who create and provide data to the public, readers will learn how data is vetted and why the grunt work of cleaning, filtering and vetting is essential to any visualization. The final chapter provides exercises for self-training or use in classes and the companion website provides data sets discussed in the book.
