"Instead of people publishing books that community members are not able to access or read, we put these books on walls." This is a very powerful summary of the in-person data visualisation event I helped organise in Nairobi, Kenya.
"Which data visualisation books do you recommend?". I have been asked this question so many times that I ended up creating a map of all dataviz books on my shelf. The result is this colourful series of cards.
When preparing to run my own business, I read the book "Book Yourself Solid". The information designer in me couldn't help but see the concepts in the book as a network, which eventually came to life in this visualisation.
What is your favourite method of learning data visualisation? In this graphic I created for the annual census challenge by the Data Visualisation Society, the community gives us their answers.

I wrote a chapter on the data design process for the book Big Data Visualisation: Recent Developments and Challenges. This visualisation illustrates the three-step process I describe in this book.
