Book Description :

Teaches you the visual design skills you need to create dashboards that communicate clearly, rapidly, and compellingly. This book explains how to: avoid the thirteen mistakes common to dashboard design; provide viewers with the information they need quickly and clearly; and create an aesthetically pleasing viewing experience. Dashboards have become popular in recent years as uniquely powerful tools for communicating important information at a glance. Although dashboards are potentially powerful, this potential is rarely realized. The greatest display technology in the world won't solve this if you fail to use effective visual design. And, if a dashboard fails to tell you precisely what you need to know in an instant, you'll never use it, even if it's filled with cute gauges, meters, and traffic lights. Don't let your investment in dashboard technology go to waste. This book will teach you the visual design skills you need to create dashboards that communicate clearly, rapidly, and compellingly. "Information Dashboard Design" will explain how to: avoid the thirteen mistakes common to dashboard design; provide viewers with the information they need quickly and clearly; apply what we now know about visual perception to the visual presentation of information; minimize distractions, cliches, and unnecessary embellishments that create confusion; organize business information to support meaning and usability; create an aesthetically pleasing viewing experience; maintain consistency of design to provide accurate interpretation; and optimize the power of dashboard technology by pairing it with visual effectiveness.

Book Description :

A dashboard is a collection of data visualization tools that provide the means to quickly get an overview of how an organization or a section of an organization is performing. Industries such as sales and manufacturing use dashboards extensively, but dashboards are quickly being adapted across all types of profit and non-profit organizations. THE DESIGN OF INFORMATION DASHBOARDS USING SAS is a nuts and bolts guide to building information dashboards using SAS software. The primary audience for this book is SAS programmers charged with developing dashboards for their organization. This audience would include data managers, report writers, and business analysts. A secondary audience includes business mangers and non-programmers who are just hoping to learn a little more about the potential of the technology. The first four chapters provide background on the science of dashboards and related concepts. The remaining chapters cover coding and design of dashboard elements using SAS software. By providing clear, well-structured examples, the volume shows the reader how to quickly and easily construct basic dashboards that are suitable to their unique needs and environment. SAS users familiar with the basics of SAS and the fundamentals of SAS/GRAPH software will be able to make small changes to the sample code contained in the book to design simple dashboards. Advanced users with more extensive knowledge of SAS/GRAPH and the annotate facility will be able to more fully customize the sample code to fit a variety of needs. CHAPTER DESCRIPTIONS Chapter I. AN INTRODUCTION TO DASHBOARDS The first chapter defines precisely what dashboards are and their common characteristics. Following a brief history of information dashboards, the chapter discusses their value, as well as some negatives, and describes current use and trends. Finally, the value that SAS contributes to producing the medium is introduced. Chapter II. SEVEN STEPS TO CREATING A DASHBOARD The development of a dashboard often requires a substantial investment of time and money, so designers should do it thoughtfully. The goal of this chapter is to guide the reader through the dashboard development process. The chapter provides an overview of the major steps involved, including preparation, design, construction, and maintenance of dashboards. Chapter III. ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS OF A DASHBOARD When you create your dashboard, several essential elements should be present on the interface to make the dashboard maximally effective. The third chapter covers these essential components of a dashboard. Chapter IV. BEST PRACTICES IN DASHBOARD VISUAL DESIGN This chapter covers the foundations of good dashboard design and addresses the contributions of Edward Tufte and Stephen Few to the area. The chapter delves into the science of visual perception and how to apply them to good dashboard design. Chapter V. CREATING DASHBOARD KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS USING SAS The fifth chapter presents a library of effective dashboard display media and discusses how to produce them using SAS coding. Programmers will be able to pick and choose those chart types that are most appropriate for their particular dashboard. Strengths and weaknesses of the various chart types are discussed. This chapter will also introduces new SAS procedures such as PROC GKPI. Chapter VI. ASSEMBLING AND DISTRIBUTING SAS DASHBOARDS This chapter describes how to bring all the visual components together to produce a single dashboard display. PROC GREPLAY, ODSLAYOUT, and ODS TAGSETS are described as the methods of choice. Methods of distributing this output are described. Chapter VII. DESIGING DASHBOARDS USING SAS BI DASHBOARDS The final chapter briefly describes the design of dashboards using SAS BI Dashboards business intelligence software.

Book Description :

Information, no matter how important, cannot speak for itself. To tell its story, it relies on us to give it a clear voice. No information is more critical than quantitative data ... numbers that reveal what's happening, how our organizations are performing, and opportunities to do better. Numbers are usually presented in tables and graphs, but few are properly designed, resulting not only in poor communication, but at times in miscommunication. This is a travesty, because the skills needed to present quantitative information effectively are simple to learn. Good communication doesn't just happen; it is the result of good design.

Book Description :

Teaches the analytical skills necessary to glean value from the warehouses of accumulating data In this age of so-called Big Data, organizations are scrambling to implement new software and hardware to increase the amount of data they collect and store. However, in doing so they are unwittingly making it harder to find the needles of useful information in the rapidly growing mounds of hay. If you don't know how to differentiate signals from noise, adding more noise only makes things worse. When we rely on data for making decisions, how do we tell what qualifies as a signal and what is merely noise? In and of itself, data is neither. Assuming that data is accurate, it is merely a collection of facts. When a fact is true and useful, only then is it a signal. When it's not, it's noise. It's that simple. In "Signal," Stephen Few provides the straightforward, practical instruction in everyday signal detection that has been lacking until now. Using data visualization methods, he teaches how to apply statistics to gain a comprehensive understanding of one's data and adapts the techniques of Statistical Process Control in new ways to detect not just changes in the metrics but also changes in the patterns that characterize data.

"Big Data, Big Dupe" is a little book about a big bunch of nonsense. The story of David and Goliath inspires us to hope that something little, when armed with truth, can topple something big that is a lie. This is the author's hope. While others have written about the dangers of Big Data, Stephen Few reveals the deceit that belies its illusory nature. If "data is the new oil," Big Data is the new snake oil. It isn't real. It's a marketing campaign that has distracted us for years from the real and important work of deriving value from data.

How do we create new ways of looking at the world? Join award-winning data storyteller RJ Andrews as he pushes beyond the usual how-to, and takes you on an adventure into the rich art of informing. Creating Info We Trust is a craft that puts the world into forms that are strong and true. It begins with maps, diagrams, and charts — but must push further than dry defaults to be truly effective. How do we attract attention? How can we offer audiences valuable experiences worth their time? How can we help people access complexity? Dark and mysterious, but full of potential, data is the raw material from which new understanding can emerge. Become a hero of the information age as you learn how to dip into the chaos of data and emerge with new understanding that can entertain, improve, and inspire. Whether you call the craft data storytelling, data visualization, data journalism, dashboard design, or infographic creation — what matters is that you are courageously confronting the chaos of it all in order to improve how people see the world. Info We Trust is written for everyone who straddles the domains of data and people: data visualization professionals, analysts, and all who are enthusiastic for seeing the world in new ways. This book draws from the entirety of human experience, quantitative and poetic. It teaches advanced techniques, such as visual metaphor and data transformations, in order to create more human presentations of data. It also shows how we can learn from print advertising, engineering, museum curation, and mythology archetypes. This human-centered approach works with machines to design information for people. Advance your understanding beyond by learning from a broad tradition of putting things “in formation” to create new and wonderful ways of opening our eyes to the world. Info We Trust takes a thoroughly original point of attack on the art of informing. It builds on decades of best practices and adds the creative enthusiasm of a world-class data storyteller. Info We Trust is lavishly illustrated with hundreds of original compositions designed to illuminate the craft, delight the reader, and inspire a generation of data storytellers.
