Data representation is the act  displaying the visual form of your data. The process of identifying the most effective and appropriate solution for representing our data is  unquestionably the most important feature of our visualization design.  Working on this layer involves making decisions that cut across the artistic and scientific foundations of the field.

Here we find ourselves face-to-face with the demands of achieving that ideal harmony of form and function  that was outlined in Chapter 6, Data Representation. We need to achieve the elegance of a design that aesthetically suits our intent and the  functional behavior required to fulfill the effective imparting of information.

According to Kirk 2019, in order to  dissect the importance of data representation, we are going to "look at  it from both theoretical and pragmatic perspectives." Choose three of the storytelling techniques from the gallery of charts (Pages 140 - 188) in which data is presented and stories are being interpreted. Discuss the importance and advantages of using these techniques. Provide an example of each technique.
