Another blog by Lisa Williams, author of Life and Code, a blog that curates beginner resources on learning to program for journalists and other busy people.
“In this Webinar you will learn pretty much everything there is to know about using color in data visualizations. Maureen will describe best practices for using color in visual analysis, the visual principles that underlie them, and how these insights influence Tableau’s products. You will see how different choices and settings can enhance different views and present different findings. You will also learn some of fundamentals of color vision and what ‘color blindness’ really means. All this in an effort to illustrate how color can make your dashboards both beautiful and visually effective.”
