Have you ever sat through an interminable PowerPoint presentation about market research data? How did it make you feel?

I recommend you keep up on the dynamic world of data visualization.

  1. Bitsybot is a really cool site by GfK Custom Research’s data wiz Bitsy Hansen.
  2. The good folks at O’Reilly Media have an extensive collection of data visualization resources.
  3. Information is Beautiful is by “data journalist” David McCandless. The name says it all.
  4. There is a LinkedIn Group dedicated to data visualization in market research called Market Research Data Visualization.
  5. I Love Charts presents humorous made-up charts which often manage to communicate real lessons about the presentation of data, whether intentionally or not.
  6. Chart Porn…’nuff said.
