Okay. So I'm a big believer in data literacy or graphic literacy or data visualization literacy that we can improve the way people reading graphs in the grass that they can understand the weather be for Traders or undergraduate. Students are graduate students or business analyst, or PhD Economist, people can learn how to use and and apply and read different Graphics in self. Couple of years ago, I got together with a designer friend of mine, Severino Rebecca, who runs the date of his catalog. With many of you I'll probably know and we said about to create a tool, a library

force of a deed of this world Satan types. And so our first project was up with a poster. This is a screenshot of the poster on this version. Of this poster, we have over 90 different graphs, broken into six, different categories. And the idea here is not to provide an answer to which graph you make for the day that you have. His is everybody in this room knows? There is no answer to that question, right? There is no one to one. Between data types and graph types, who is to create this library, for people who may not be familiar with the stinky diagram or slow charge or. Lot until you've

made this poster. And then I started getting emails from people who work in cubicles. And they said, I don't have room for a poster, can you make something else? So we made this sheet on the left and then we were glutton for punishment. So we made this flash card, said on the right and then because I just can't help myself. We made a game and a which is really it's fine. It's fine. Okay, so I have verification, that was not planted by the way, but I will give you five bucks later. Okay, so what I want to do

the challenge of presenting this project to you as it apparently, this traffic continuing space is nonlinear complex, right? Because you could use a column chart for example, to show comparisons between categories. You can also use a contractor showed changes over time. It snowed in here, early nonlinear until the way, I'm going to try to prove that didn't talk to you about it, in a linear format of a presentation, is to draw on one of my kids. Know, if you have kids, you may know these books. Laura numeroff is author. She

has many different versions of this. If you give a moose, a muffin, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, If You Give a Pig a party, if you don't have kids, you should also get these cuz they're all just great. And and what the books do, they all use the same device. He's the same storytelling device known as a circular storytelling to buy. So in the case of this book, the kid gives a moose a muffin and then another muffin and another muffin until they're out of muffins. Okay? So then to mate and I want to make more muffins and then to do so they have to go to the store to get the muffin mix,

okay? But to get to the store, they have to put on their jackets, they put on their jackets, they find. There's a hole in the jacket, so then they get needle and thread to repair the jacket and then they decide to make sock puppets out of the thing. And then they paint it. It, it's alright. It's just the whole throwing it all circles. All the way back to the Moose remembers that he wants a muffin, okay? So that's how this circular story device works. And so I'm going to use this the storytelling device to tell you about this graphic Continuum project, but I'm not going to use the story of a

moose, a muffin. I'm going to use my own version of this story. So, So, here is the story trying to get you to understand how we sort of think about this product. So if you give another number, he might want to table to go with it and you could add another number another number, but we can first focus on that one number and you can take that number and you can plot that number in an ex-wife space and you can add another number and you can add more numbers and you can add even more data. And this might remind him of other states that he could use to prevent the same. Did he might

create a stacked area, charge we Mike Rita normalized area charge in this might remind him with other craft types that he could use my remind him about a paired, column chart were stacked column chart and you can rotate the space 90-degree to say, freedom paired barchart are stacked bar chart and if you were to go back to the line, he can add more data to those lines, right? In this might remind him that he could break this graph up to create small multiples or the dreaded term sparkline. And so he can look just at the end point. Of these lines and maybe think about just plotting

those points in this may lead him to think about safe examples flowchart which you could rotate. Again 90° the creative Dot Plot and all these decisions that we make about the data and the grass. Do you make me lead him to start thinking about uncertainty which may lead him to think about fan? Charts May think about box and whisker plots or even violin charts. You can go back to that line chart and he could add a second vertical axis and this may lead him to think about correlations. So this may lead him to think about us Scatter Plots which you could add another variable to clean

up bubble. Plot for the unfortunate, 3D bubble pot in lines and other types he could use me lead them to think about a parallel coordinates plotter, use the circles to treat a radial chart or you can come bind it to the correlations of the lines together, to create a connected scatter plot to show changes in and correlations overtime. And this made Listen to think about Connections, which may lead him to think about say a network diagram, or Force directed layout or a hive charts in the Curves in the hive chart. Me lead him to

think about there's a chord diagram in the Arts in a chord diagram Baileyton to think about an arc charged and you can combine the time from early on the Arts and Charter trade, a sequential or chart, which time is plotted. From point. A to point B, B to see you at 8 to see. And this very simply me lead him to start thinking about time which may lead him to think about a flow diagram or a tree diagram, or very simply just a timeline and you can take that fine line and you can rotate it 9-2 degrees and that might lead him to think about a Gantt chart and you could take time and familiar shapes

together and he might think about creating a calendar and you can think about combining the cyrkle from the bubble chart the time of the calendar, to put them together to create a nightingale chart, right? But a nightingale chart is really just a circle that's been exploded out in all different directions and this may lead him to think about a pie chart Which unfortunately, he could rotate. We can blow it up or he could punch a hole in the middle of it or he can blow it up again or you could cut it in half. But all that's just a variation on a circle and this may lead to think about

other shapes that he might use to present the state of melee. Tend to think about squares, for example, to create a tree map or blow it apart to create a square cloud or stack them on top of each other to Credit Unit chart, and the squares and the unit chart. Me, leave him to think about other icons and you might use my lead him to think about it. I sit tight plot and the people nice at I-20 lead him to take about high-frequency data with me leaving to take about a heat map, which may lead him to think about a contour map, which went also lead to the truly unfortunate 3D contour map. Can

if I don't know if you agree, this may lead into very simply think about Maps. Enter maps. Of course you could think about adding other shapes. It may lead him to think about circles or squares or lines and the connections formed by the lines on the map. May lead them to think about a specific point on the map where is currently talkin and talkin to amazing people doing amazing work in all sorts of different field and you can take this point off the map and plot it in an ex-wife space and so if you were to give an autograph he might want a number to go with it. Thank you very much.
