7 Pioneers of Data Visualization

2013 September 7
by Ben Jones

I’m delighted to be able to deliver a presentation this coming Monday at TCC13 at 4pm called “7 Things We Can Learn from the Pioneers of Data Visualization”. The timeline and visualization below reveal the seven pioneers we’ll be considering, but I won’t reveal the “7 things” we can learn from them until the session itself. If you’re at TCC, be sure to swing by the Chesapeake 4-6 conference room to hear what they are. Suffice it to say that anyone who has ever tried to change their corner of the world by communicating data to others will make seven new friends before the session is over.

See you there!

    Ben – this is a great piece. Love it. Thanks for sharing. Question – how did you go about picking those 7 and have you thought about extending it to today?

      Hi Gavin, thanks for your comment. I chose these 7 rather haphazardly and based on my own cursory research. I actually introduced the presentation by saying that another session could be given focusing on the contributions of more recent pioneers, including Tukey, Cleveland and Tufte to name a few. Who would you add to that list?
