Data Visualization Best Practices
Data visualization, or the techniques used to visually display or communicate data, is an obvious output of our research or data analysis. Being able to effectively communicate your data to an audience is a necessary part of any project. How to harness visualization tools to tell a story will be presented in this short workshop. We will discuss how different types of graphs and charts are perceived and how they can be used to answer different questions, as well as what aspects of graphs make for effective storytelling.
