Visual and Statistical Thinking: Displays of Evidence for Making Decisions This booklet reprints chapter 2 of Visual Explanations, analyzing a cholera epidemic in London in and the evidence used to decide to launch the space shuttle Challenger in Topics include cause and effect, data errors and credibility, evidence selection, and statistical graphics. For teaching data analysis and evidence in decision-making. How computer slideware for presentations corrupts content and reasoning.
It is well worth reading in full for that reason alone. For these reasons, Tufte CSS encourages caution before reaching for a list element, and by default removes the bullet points from unordered lists. Ashworth Underwood, Note that this tag has three parameters.
The first is an arbitrary id. This parameter can be named anything as long as it is unique to this post. The second parameter is the path to the image. And the final parameter is whatever caption you want to be displayed with the figure. All parameters must be enclosed in quotes for this simple liquid tag to work!
Full Width Figures If you need a full-width image or figure, another custom liquid tag is available to use. Perhaps you have noticed their use in this document already. You are very astute. There is a wide margin to provide ample room for sidenotes and small figures.
There exists a slight semantic distinction between sidenotes and marginnotes. Sidenotes Sidenotes This is a sidenote and displays a superscript display a superscript. The sidenote Liquid tag contains two components. The first is an identifier allowing the sidenote to be targeted by the twitchy index fingers of mobile device users so that all the yummy sidenote goodness is revealed when the superscript is tapped.
The second components is the actual content of the sidenote.
Both of these components should be enclosed in single quotes. On small screens, the sidenotes disappear and when the superscript is clicked, a side note will open below the content, which can then be closed with a similar click. The marginnnote Liquid tags has the same two components as the sidenote tag. Anything can be placed in a margin note. Well, anything that is an inline element.
Block level elements can make the Kramdown parser do strange things. When clicked, it will open the margin note below the content, which can then be closed with a similar click.
Bottom line: If you are using this to document mathematics, be super careful to isolate your LaTeX blocks by blank lines! Tables Tables are, frankly, a pain in the ass to create.
That said, they often are one of the best methods for presenting data. Bad examples are books in which all images are banned to a separate appendix at the end of the book.
This graphic was basically unknown before Tufte introduced it to the world in his book The visual display of quantitative information Provide a detailed title, indicate the authors and sponsors, document the data sources, show complete measurement scales, point out relevant issues. Little in this chapter is concerned directly with issues of visual presentation some draft pages for this chapter can be seen here. Most of this chapter has already been published by Tufte in , as a separate pamphlet with the same title: The cognitive style of PowerPoint: Pitching out corrupts within.
Tufte offers a fierce and detailed critique of a key NASA PowerPoint slide that presented the underestimated risk of damage of the space shuttle Columbia, before the Columbia burnt up during atmosphere reentry, killing the seven astronauts on board. Tufte seems to blame PowerPoint. Yes, the slide is very bad. Yes, it is almost incomprehensible.
A two-page interview is included with someone who used to pull down and smash statues of the Shah of Iran, leaving behind empty pedestals BE, pp. I have to admit that I find it difficult to see the coherence here, both within this chapter and in relation to the other chapters. These are indeed without pedestals, but also without any explanatory text.
Update: In the second printing of the book, in May , Tufte has added an introduction to his sculpture photographs. Running out of focus?
Starting with his first book on the visual display of information in , Tufte has been enriching the vocabulary of information design with his influential concepts. However, while The Visual Display of Quantitative Information and Envisioning Information are undisputed classics and required reading for everyone seriously interested in information design, Visual Explanations and Beautiful Evidence both appear less focused.
My general impression is that the first part of Beautiful Evidence - chapters 1 through 5 pp. Here Tufte conflates diversity of objects of visualizations with diversity of cultural backgrounds of designers of visualizations. My ball is yellow. It is a big, pretty ball.
