Awesome visualization research


A curated list of data visualizations research papers, books, blog posts, and other readings. I aim to limit this to pieces that will be of interest to practitioners as well as academics. If you are looking for more practical tools and libraries see awesome-dataviz.

At present this list is very biased towards things @petulla or I are reading for personal research interests, but we gladly accept pull requests.
