"You don't make choices on data. You make choices on information."

In this SDW Free Friday Tech Talk, Douglas Welton, MAC OS developer (yes, a Unix programmer in the flesh!) and SDW Tech Talk regular, took us through myriad questions related to visualizing data over time.

This presentation explored the design, creation and use of Data Visualization in our current cultural environment. Douglas also discussed why people want to visualize data in the first place and broke down the value that can be derived from different types of visualizations.

In addition, we also learned about some of the programming and statistical tools that are available to anyone interested in creating interactive data viz.

Great talk!
