Editorial Reviews

Review

An excellent stimulus for deeper thinking
about display techniques. --The American Cartographer

Certain kinds of tendency toward
bad graphics could be cured if as many
authors as possible would not just read,
but, in the words of the Anglican Prayer
Book, `learn, mark, and inwardly digest'
this volume. --Atmospheric Environment

Ideally, everyone interested in getting
the most out of their data or presenting
data clearly and concisely should have
a copy handy. --Meteorological Magazine

About the Author

William S. Cleveland is the Shanti
S. Gupta Distinguished Professor at
Purdue University, and splits his time
between the Statistics and Computer
Science Departments. Throughout his
career, he has worked in research
areas --- statistical model building,
local machine learning, visualization,
time series, and data mining --- that
have broadened the scope of research in
learning from data. He has developed
many methods of visualization, statitics,
and machine learning that are widely used
throughout the sciencetific community.
Cleveland has published over 100
papers on his research in a wide
range of scientific journals, books,
and proceedings. His two books, The
Elements of Graphing Data and Visualizing
Data have been reviewed in many journals
from a wide variety of disciplines, and
Elements was selected for the Library

Tufte shows you why it's important to do graphs well. Cleveland shows you _how_.
The last quarter of the book details experiments in human visual perception that rank how well we detect certain things: relative angles not on a common baseline (i.e. pie charts) justly come out at the bottom of the list.
One of a only handful of books I've labelled "JXH ONLY". If I loan you my copy, know that you are special.

William Cleveland clearly describes how data can be presented to great effect. His description of visual perception spell out the "how to's" of graphing data. While many graphing programs are available in today's high technology environment, Cleveland's descriptions of how data can be presented into graphical format is enlightening. The book provides great examples of both superior and poor graphing presentation, focusing on how to encode graphs to allow for straightforward data analysis.
"The Elements of Graphiing Data" is a must for those who graph scientific data.

Verified Purchase
previously borrowed it from lib, then decided to buy it.
not like other similar books, which only illustrate big charts but discuss little how to produce them, from this book, i can learn a lot which was ignored before. i even think most latter books just copy its idea, even graphics.

especially very helpful to produce academic charts
