The effect of the organization and selection of visual design elements in digital visualization design will directly affect the efficient transmission of data information. The key points of visual design elements in data visualization which are embodied in three aspects: element, style and order were analyzed, and the design elements included in each aspect were refined and classified, how these elements convey information in data visualization was described, then the application principles and methods of these morphological elements were analyzed one by one. The results of experimental part of this paper from the overall analysis of the previous data to the final presentation in data visualization design are based on the theoretical research of the morphological design. In the visual design of data, the effective grasp of the visualization design elements can strengthen the communication of information and the understanding of the audience.
