The purpose of this SIG (Special Interest Group) or string is to advance and improve graphics for both practitioners and researchers that correspond to the analytics of forecasting. My responsibility is to facilate the discussion of time series graphics in a similiar fashion to what Edward Tufte does in his various strings under "ask E.T." on graphics under edwardtufte.com. The discussion will link the Forecasting Principles web site with the practitioner journal, Foresightand will be initiated by a short article in Summer-2009 entitled "Sparklines-The Tom Thumb of Statistical Graphs."
Hope to hear from you in the near future.
