why data visualization
Why Data Visualization
  • As author, data journalist and information designer David McCandless said in his TED talk:
  • "By visualizing information, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map. And when you're lost in information, an information map is kind of useful."

tufte s principles of graphical excellence
Tufte’s “Principles of Graphical Excellence”
  • Graphical Excellence is the well-designed presentation of interesting data – a matter of substance, of statistics, and of design.
  • Graphical Excellence consists of complex ideas communicated with clarity, precision, and efficiency.
  • Graphical Excellence is that which gives to the viewer the greatest number of ideas in the shortest time with the least ink in the smallest space.
  • Graphical Excellence is nearly always multivariate
  • And Graphical Excellence requires telling the truth about the data

In the fields of computational linguistics and probability, an n-gram is a contiguous sequence of n items from a given sequence of text or speech. The items can be phonemes, syllables, letters, words or base pairs according to the application. The n-grams typically are collected from a text or speech corpus.
