A picture is worth a thousand words: communicate science with data visualisation
Convener: Bárbara Ferreira  | Co-Convener: Laura Roberts Artal 
Thu, 27 Apr, 17:30–19:00

Maps, graphs and figures have been used to convey complex messages for centuries. With today’s ever growing datasets, which make it increasingly difficult to easily communicate information, effective data visualisation has gained new importance. With data visualisations hoards of data can be presented in both useful and beautiful ways, conveying a message clearly, easily and effectively. Interactive displays mean audiences can be engaged further, by allowing them to drill down into the nuts and bolts of the data. This short course will provide a short introduction on how to create effective and insightful data visualisations.
