The aim of this research paper is to analyse existing data visualisation tools and techniques. It will seek to highlight these examples in a practical context, incorporating issues of statistical storytelling and benefits for displaying statistical data. It will build upon the previously released paper, "Data Communication - Emerging International Trends and Practices of the Australian Bureau of Statistics."
This paper should not be viewed from a technical perspective but rather from a design point of view. Although reference will be made to various technical applications this does not fall within the primary scope of this paper.
