Data Visualization at Madison

This blog will cover topics in data visualization across fields, though with some focus on social science.

It will also support the class Political Science 919 in the spring semester 2010 that I will teach on data visualization. Anyone interested in taking the class should contact me.

The content will start to grow soon with lots of links.
