Designing Data Vizualisations Workshop

A session at Strata 2012

Tuesday 28th February, 2012

9:00am to 12:30pm (PST)

We will discuss how to figure out what story to tell, select the right data, and pick appropriate layout and encodings. The goal is to learn how to create a visualization that conveys appropriate knowledge to a specific audience (which may include the designer).

We’ll briefly discuss tools, including pencil and paper. No prior technology or graphic design experience is necessary. An awareness of some basic user-centered design concepts will be helpful.

Understanding of your specific data or data types will help immensely. Please do bring data sets to play with.
