From this project, I learned that the visualization of data can lie to people by creators using specific tricks, even though the data itself is truthful. Associated with the reading, I still don't think the purpose of visualizing data is to achieve beauty because after all, what we want is data and information. We need to conceive them correctly. The purpose of data visualization should be easier for viewers to conceive but the most important prerequisite is that it must avoid as much as bias as possible. The benefits of convenience must be over the short comes of misleading. As media designers, even if we try to do the right thing, we cannot promise other people try to lie to viewers by manipulating data. For this project, I just use some easy and common tricks but I got very deceiving data presentation. Later on, when analyzing charts and those processed data, I will be much more careful than before to avoid being cheated.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
