The Art of Data Visualization

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

More and more, designers are incorporating data into the media experience. Data has emerged as such a critical part of modern life that it has almost become an art form, where data-driven visual experiences challenge viewers to extract personal meaning from a sea of information, something we experience virtually every day.

Watch this episode of Off Book with your class, and explore how the practice of data visualization has gained even more importance in the digital age. From thousand-year-old cartography and Galileo’s sky drawings to Google Maps and pop infographics, they’ll learn what data visualization means to their everyday lives: WATCH: http://to.pbs.org/1IL9gvD
