A Curated Collection of All the DataViz Methods: The Data Visualization Catalogue

February 2, 2014 Robin Good

If you've ever struggled with what visualization to create to best show the data you have, The Data Visualization Catalogue might provide just the help you

Robin Good's insight:



The Data Visualisation Catalogue is an on-going project developed by Severino Ribecca which attempts to index and catalogue all of the data visualization approaches available, in order to help journalists, designers and professional communicators identify more easily the type of data visualization most appropriate for their needs.

.

In the Catalogue there are now over 50 different data visualization approaches that have been identified, and about a third of them have also been documented with a basic description, visual examples, relevant tags to associate it with their possibe best uses, variations, and with a list of alternative tools available to create that type of data chart.

.

You can browse the catalogue also by using the "Search by Function" which is designed to aid in choosing the appropiate data visualization approach based on the specific communication need at hand, or with the "View by List" approach, which organizes dataviz methods by types. 

.

My comment: Excellent resource for visual communicators of all kinds as it helps you see the great variety of dataviz approaches available. It makes it easier to identify and select relevant solutions according to needs and use.
