Since this book first published in 2006, the field of information visualization has changed dramatically. First, information visualization has exploded online and on other digital platforms. Second, information graphics reporting has encompassed nearly every sector of communication and business. Visual reporting skills are not only relevant in traditional news environments, but many other professions as well.
This edition seeks to address these changes by providing learners with a cross-platform, cross-industry approach to instruction. It will include a robust, dynamic website complete with regularly updated examples of print, online, and broadcast graphics, as well as useful tutorials and exercises.
This book covers everything you need to know about reporting with graphics; information visualization and graphic design from a journalistic perspective.
A companion website includes regularly updated examples of print, online, and broadcast graphics, as well as tutorials and exercises.
Chapters include relevant case studies and conclude with essays from experts. When appropriate, resource files for exercises (such as Illustrator templates, images, and/or other visual reference material) will also be provided on the companion website.
