Essentials of Data Visualization. An 8-part video mini-series on how to think about drawing data. In collaboration with University of Sydney.

Each video is about 15 minutes long and includes exercises for you to try.

Let me what you think—leave your feedback below each video.

Uncertainty

Don't make errors in error bars.

PDF | Knowing the limits of your knowledge is very important. In biology, it’s important to be able to sample the extent of biological variation. And so being able to show this and other forms of variation in measurements or any computed values in visualizations is very important—it addresses reproducibility and your capacity to make statistical inference. Often this is done with error bars. Ironically, there’s a lot of error associated with the use of and interpretation of error bars.
