Summary:Art, or Science? Which of these is the right way to think of the field of visualization? This is not an easy question to answer, even for those who have many years experience in making graphical depictions of data with a view to help people understand it and take action. In this book, Graham Wills bridges the gap between the art and the science of visually representing statistical data. He does not simply give rules and advice, but bases these on general principles and provides a clear path between them.   This book is concerned with the graphical representation of time data and is written to cover a range of different users.
