Visualization is an important and often overlooked aspect of digital research. Choosing the best tool for the type of data you are working with will have a significant impact on your project. For example, types of data in the humanities might include data gleaned from primary texts, historical artifacts, maps, and demographics data from census and survey results. Common types of visualization include graphs, charts, tree diagrams, timelines, infographics, maps, and more. The appropriate tool can help researchers identify patterns in the artifacts they are analyzing and help create a narrative for your audience. This page offers a few examples of books and Open Source tools to help humanities scholars get started with visualization.
