We live and work in the Information Age. But while we rely more and more on "good" information, only few information comes in the form, the amount and the quality the consumer needs. Meaningless slide decks, bad charts, unstructured documents or chatty emails overwhelm our reception.
This topic area discusses how information can be gathered, prepared and analysed, and how information transfer can be done smarter.
Visualization— Visualizing information is an important aspect to faster understand data. Alas, this is often done incorrectly, in the worst cases leading to wrong interpretations of data. This chapter presents guidelines of best practice approaches to visualize information.
Presentation— This chapter hosts examples and guidelines of when and - more often - when not to use presentations.
Text— Each of us consumes and produces information every day in the form of emails, blogs or more extensive text documents.
Speech— Oral communication is a very important form of passing and receiving information.
