Data Visualization and the Modern Imagination

This exhibition about the history of data visualization is "the culmination of a partnership between RJ Andrews, a data storyteller based in San Francisco, and the David Rumsey Map Center" at Stanford University Libraries.

Guest Curator RF Andrews writes: "The sections in this exhibition examine information graphics that show space, time, nature, and society. Many are beautiful. Each is a unique way of seeing still worth our attention."
