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 map 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. We’ll have a dataset on-hanf to work with.
