Making Data Visual (DVS Workshop Series)

The process of making data visual can be nuanced and iterative.  Sometimes we start a project with a very specific idea of the kind of visualization we want, but other times we may not be sure what will work best.  This workshop will address three important aspects of making data visual: identifying the goal of your visualization, identifying the audience of your visualization, and understanding the pros and cons of different types of visualizations.  This workshop will focus not on any specific software application, but instead will focus on helping attendees develop instincts for what kinds of visualizations match well with particular datasets, goals, and audiences. The emphasis for this workshop will be on standard visualization types, like bar charts and scatter plots, rather than non-traditional visualizations or graphics.
