We all love maps, because maps are great. That’s why we’re here, right? But it turns out that sometimes maps aren’t the right answer when it comes to visually presenting data with a spatial component. Noah Iliinsky will discuss why, and how to figure out when to not map your data. And of course some examples will be shown where a better choice is a non-standard map, and some where the best representation doesn’t involve a map at all.
Noah Iliinsky is a senior UX architect with Amazon Web Services.
