Graphical perception – learn the fundamentals first | FlowingData

Came across this discussion of Cleveland and McGill's work on Flowing Data regarding visualization of data. Things to keep in mind.

When it comes to visualization, especially on the Web, you have to be open-minded, and you should be willing to try new things. There’s no advancing otherwise. However, before you dive into the advanced stuff - like just about everything in your life - you have to learn the fundamentals before you know when you can break the rules.
