I’m a big believer that anyone can learn how to communicate their data in better ways. I’ve published more than 130 podcast episodes, and I don’t think any of my guests have come directly to data visualization, but instead have come from a range of areas like journalism, astronomy, economics, business, government, and more.

When it comes to learning how to best visualize your data, there is a plethora of great books, websites, blogs, and podcasts. In my Core Principles classes and workshops, I provide this cheat sheet as a summary of some of the core lessons. Obviously, this doesn’t cover everything, but I think it serves as a good reminder of best practices and core things to keep in mind.
