Slightly better visualizations, Round 2

February 25, 2011

I haven’t quite got WordPress figured out, and I don’t want to put these images in a gallery, so I’ll split these up into separate posts. This one I’m including mostly so Mark can see how mine differs from his. I’ll keep this one on the front page, because I think it’s pretty!

Here’s an image from Fred Lerdahl’s book Tonal Pitch Space along with my redrawing of it. It follows one of the best design maxims for data visualization ever: if it doesn’t matter, make it gray! This one is the first one I did, so I’d probably change some things about it now, but it doesn’t bother me so much that I won’t put it up the way it is.
