Welcome back to the show! There are lots of decisions to be made when it comes to creating a data visualization. And when you pull multiple visualizations together into one view, the decisions compound. That’s why on this week’s show, I’m happy to be joined by Steve Wexler and Jeffrey Shaffer, two of the three authors of the new book, The Big Book of Dashboards. In this episode, we first talk about what a dashboard is, how they define it, and what it means for content-creators and readers.

A dashboard is a visual display of data used to monitor conditions and/or facilitate understanding.

We also talk about their favorite dashboards, tools, and approaches. We also cover the three most important things when it comes to creating a dashboard. So whether you’ve ever created a dashboard or need to create a dashboard, this episode is for you.
