Welcome to visual-literacy.org - your Visualization Skills Portal

This site focuses on a critical, but often neglected skill for managers, communication experts, and analytics professionals, namely visual literacy, or the ability to evaluate, apply, or create graphic representations of data, information and knowledge. The resources on this site enable you to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of graphic representations, to improve their shortcomings, to use them to create and communicate insights, or to devise new ways of exploring and representing data, information, or knowledge.
