Data Visualization


You need to cite where you got your data from. It is best to do this somewhere at the bottom of your data visualization project, where it won't distract the audience.

If you got your data from several sources, make sure to cite each one.

Your citation should include at least the following:

  • the organization or authorresponsible for the data set
  • the title of the data set
  • the year the data set was published
  • the URL or DOI (digital object identifier) for where you located the dataset
