The Principles of Edward Tufte

The problem: “presenting large amounts of information in a way that is compact, accurate, adequate for the purpose, and easy to understand”.

The solution: Edward Tufte (actually, the solution is “to develop a consistent approach to the display of graphics which enhances its dissemination, accuracy, and ease of comprehension”… but that’s not as catchy).

Yes, it’s an article outlining Edward Tufte’s “work on the  use of graphics to display quantitative information”, as gleaned from his three books: The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, Visual Explanations, and Envisioning Information.
