In this engaging talk, veteran Data Visualization Educator and Consultant Nick Desbarats of Perceptual Edge uses graphs from Data Visualization software vendors and major media outlets to illustrate how surprisingly easy it is to create visualizations that unintentionally misrepresent the data that underlies them.
