This study explores the potential of visual data storytelling as casual visual content. The visual data storytelling framework contributes to the epistemology of data visualisation through a thorough definition of the basic dimensions that are required to tell visual stories based on raw input data. We present quantitative evidence of how the story in visual data content influences the viewer’s cognition and experience towards the data. Our findings shed light on the benefits and limitations of visual data storytelling.
