Understanding what makes a visualization memorable John Wihbey teaches data journalism in the Media Innovation program at Northeastern University’s School of Journalism. The world of data visualization has long been shaped by canonical ideas from theorists like Edward Tufte. His book The Visual Display of Quantitative Information is a must-read for information designers, which include newsroom graphics editors. Tufte’s organizing principles–the eloquent and ethical display of substance, statistics, and design–are now being refined and adapted for media production by contemporary dataviz gurus like Alberto Cairo. But how does human cognition fit into the practice of visualization?

This is where dashboards come into play: a well-designed dashboard can save huge amounts of time, helping people to quickly identify the numbers that matter, in order to make insightful observations or to compile reports.

25 Innovative Dashboard Concepts and Designs Dashboard design is a tricky business. The challenge is to communicate the key numbers in a straightforward way, while allowing users to drill down into the specifics. It is about avoiding clutter, about catering for personalisation, and about the prioritisation of the right metrics. It’s difficult to get right, but I think many of these examples have lots of good things going for them.
