Product description

From the Back Cover

Create visualizations that are right for your data

When we speak of visualizing data, we must keep in mind that any representation of data other than simple text is indeed visualization. But not all visualizations are suited to all forms of data.

Bar, column, and line charts; scorecards and key performance indicators; network maps; tables; and custom graphics drawn by an illustrator are all visualization techniques that, when used appropriately, will convey the meaning of data. In this full–color book, you′ll discover the different visualization types and, more importantly, learn how to choose and create one based on the data you have.

  • Learn to choose an appropriate visualization for your data
  • See how visualizations differ from infographics
  • Explore Microsoft′s visualization tools, including PerformancePoint®, SharePoint®, Excel, Power Pivot, and PowerView
  • Find out how to use 3D effectively
  • Use HTML5 and related technologies to create your own custom visualizations
  • Examine several useful visualization strategies, complete with examples of available tools

Companion website

Find all the code samples used in the book on the companion website,, along with screen captures of various visualizations.
