Chapter 14 Output for Presentation

Broadly speaking, visualizations of data serve two purposes: discovery and communication. In the discovery phase, you’ll create exploratory graphics, and when you do this, it’s important to be able try out different things quickly. In the communication phase, you’ll present your graphics to others. When you do that, you’ll need to tweak the appearance of the graphics (which I’ve written about in previous chapters), and you’ll usually need to put them somewhere other than on your computer screen. This chapter is about that last part: saving your graphics so that they can be presented in documents.
