It is a creative and dynamic field with a lot of room for experiment. I am considering report and dashboard design, and within this frame Data Visualisation, as a form of practical art.
Well designed and built reports are critical for solution adoption and usability.

However, in this post I will concentrate on exactly the opposite topic — intentionally mystifying reports, obscuring the data and making it hard, for the report consumers to reach informed conclusions. I will also show how we can make the data visualisations as misleading as possible.
This post is not as abstract as one may think, as it draws its examples from a very real project, for which I had to build a report under heavy pressure. The data was perfectly suitable for building a Pivot Table on top of it, so I did so and then I decided to use the pivot table as a source for my report.
The users have one measure — Spending Amount and a few dimensions — Category and Focus for that spending. The request came in the form: So, I sat down and produced this prototype with their colour theme: As you can see from the screenshot, the report is fairly simple — the bar graphs on the top clearly show how the Amount is distributed per Category and Focus.
Also, because of an explicit request, I build the bar graph on the second row to show category and focus amounts combined, and in order to clarify the whole picture, I added the table at the bottom of the report.
The report works for colour-blind people too, as the details for the Focus per Category Expenditure bar graph are shown directly below in the data table. I sent the report prototype for review, and the response was: Adding more fake data got rejected, so I was advised to prepare a new prototype report with the new requirements.
Now, Stephen Few would spew if presented with such a report. A 3D Pie Chart. The whole report is totally useless. Furthermore, the Pie Chart combines the focus and category and uses virtually indistinguishable colours for the different slices.
The 3D effect distorts the proportions of these slices and if printed in Black and White, or if viewed by a colour-blind person, the report looks like this: Since my goal of total mystification of the report was achieved, I sent the second prototype back.
Would it be possible to leave just those two and change the Pie Chart to show data broken down just by Category? A point for them. Then I decided to remove the 3D cone graph, to remove all 3D effects, to make it more readable and to create the following 3rd prototype: Here, we can see that the pie has the actual percentages displayed, and each category amount can be calculated from there.
The stacked bar graph is again almost useless. They had a new suggestion — change the pie chart back to a bar graph and play with the format, so that even the smallest amount is visible. I offered an option, made another prototype and it finally got approved.
The exact words were: The Y Axis in the first graph is interesting.The study of Marxism falls under three main headings, corresponding broadly to philosophy, social history and economics - Dialectical Materialism, Historical Materialism and Marxist Economics.
Here we provide a selection of material on Dialectical Materialism. Many commentators have raised questions regarding the disastrous failure of the gathering in June of the Group of 7 leaders of the most advanced economic powers of the world (Opinion: Time to scrap the G7, DW, 11 June ; The G-7 Fiasco: it's time to isolate Donald Trump, Spiegel Online, FOREWORD by B K S Iyengar The Hatha yoga pradipika of Svatmarama is one of the most important yoga texts, and Hans-Ulrich Rieker's translation and commentary have long been valuable to yoga students as a complement to their practice and study.
A number of different teaching techniques have emerged due to this change in education. Many of these teaching techniques are not actually new however! The use of technology in the classroom has simply given education a new lease of life allowing us to approach old ideas in new ways.
According to McNeil, mystification is a technique used by teachers who are not fully informed on the topic in which they are instructed to teach.
Teachers often use mystification when teaching a complex, or controversial topic. All Tavistock and American foundation techniques have a single goalto break down the psychological strength of the individual and render him helpless to oppose the dictators of the World Order.
Any technique which helps to break down the family unit, and family inculcated principles of religion, honor, patriotism and sexual behavior, is used by the Tavistock scientists as weapons of crowd.
