Presenting Data and Information: A Summary of the Edward Tufte Course and Its Relevant Lessons for NCAR Scientists

David John Gagne II

National Center for Atmospheric Research

I recently attended the one-day course on “Presenting Data and Information” by Edward Tufte, a major pioneer of data visualization, thanks to generous support from Dr. Doug Nychka and IMAGe. During the course, Tufte covered important principles of analytical design and guidelines for giving effective presentations. He also provided his perspective on a wide range of topics related to data visualization and showcased visualizations that exemplified his design principles. In this seminar, I will highlight important lessons from the course, analyze some of the featured visualizations, and discuss how NCAR scientists can incorporate these design principles into their scientific workflows.
