Assignment 7- ‘ The beauty of data visualization’

The TED talk by David McCandless about Data visualization was very interesting to me because I am one of those more visual learners. I agreed with all of his points that data visuals are important to get a lot of information and facts and fit it into a small area so people can understand information easier and more efficient. One of the first things he said was “Patterns and connections that matter” talking about making visual diagrams or inactive charts to really help convey data easier and more efficient. I think the purpose of this talk was to let people know that you don’t have to be a graphic designer to be able to create carts or other types of data visual creations to make them. I also think the talk was mainly about how these charts are very helpful to people because like he said the number one sense we use is our sight. Another thing that I really agree with was when he was talking about how in this age it is a more demanding age of visual information. Even in his talk, he used charts and data he gathered to prove his point of what he was talking about and hearing it isn’t as impactful than seeing it in some type of visual way.
