Abstract:

Tufte presents a collection of some the best examples of information design ever invented, and some of the worst examples. And then he goes into the underlying principles that make the great ones sing out. This book will be really helpful to any web page designer, UI designers, statisticians, cartographers, scientists, or anyone concerned with presenting dense information in a clear way. Topics: How to present multiple dimensional data on a flat, 2D paper. How to show patterns and changes. How to layer information, so the key pieces of data appear first, and the less relevant ones reveal themselves later. The way color adds value to information.
