Data stories are key to driving impact in organizations. However, people have a dramatic instinct that can limit that impact. This session describes the common logical steps in data stories and how animation can be used to illustrate those logical steps. Animation can also be used effectively in analytical applications when attention is split between multiple views and widgets. The session also describes design principles to help authors create effective data stories that use animation.
