The purpose of this string or SIG (Special Interest Group) is to advance and improve graphics for both practitioners and researchers that go along with 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 on graphics under edwardtufte.com. The discussion will link the Forecasting Principles web site with the practitioner journal, Foresight and 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.
The Forecasting Principles site summarizes all useful knowledge about forecasting so that it can be used by researchers, practitioners, and educators. The site is devoted to improving decision making by furthering scientific forecasting.
