All there in the title. I'd like to build a better understanding of how to build dashboards, or other methods for communicating data to users- anyone got good sources for heuristics and examples?
I don't know about any heuristics or the likes, but David McCandless is your main guy if you're looking for insights into information visualisation: http://www.informationisbeautiful.net/
Not exactly it, but one hell of a start!
I've been looking for the same sort of thing.
I just came across this course. I haven't started it yet, but it looks promising ...
Gak! That looks pretty cool. Shame they don't let you buy the courses individually!
