In Chapter 11, Kirk (2016) presented the list of roles or “hats” of data visualization design. In 2012, the author presented the same topic but with a total of 8 “hats”. After reviewing the article and possibly reviewing the material from Chapter 11, please address the following:
What are the similarities and the differences in these two lists of roles?
Why do you think the list has been refined to the list presented in 2016?
What is your suggestion for the next revision and why?
Remember your initial post on the main topic should be posted by Wednesday 11:59 PM (EST). Your 2 following posts should be commenting on your classmates’ post on different days by Sunday 11:59 PM (EST). You should end the week with 3 total discussion posts.
A quality post is more than stating, “I agree with you.” Maybe you should state why you agree with your classmate’s post. Additionally, post some examples or find a related topic on the internet or University’s library and comment on it in the discussion post.
