Lecture – Week 1


The topic of data visualisation as mentioned in Waterson (2016) can be described as an important part of the communication process and also the process or attention to data, and as the world of data grows more, us designers are engaged in it and effected by it. The usefulness of data can be measured in quality and quantity of a unit and that can be portrayed in many different ways with the most common one being graphs.

This chart explains the relationships between data, information, knowledge and wisdom and what each of these main points are about or what they contain in terms of their meaning.

The effectiveness of data is very important and it should be able to portray data through visualisation in an easy manner for the viewer to understand. Effective visualisation makes data more reasonable and approachable and designers need to understand and make similarities between tasks and also interpret the graphic design principles as well. Processing, analysing and communicating as shown in Waterson (2016) can be presented through moral principles as well as analysing data or justifying challenges that designers can face in the field of visualisation.
