Data visualization gives us a better understanding of our data and helps us communicate that to others. It has the potential to generate insights, communicate findings, and illustrate evidence. Conversely, a poor visualization can undermine an argument or even mislead the reader.

Through a combination of lecture and activities, this three-hour workshop will use a data visualization workflow model to introduce students to best practices and guidelines for designing effective visualizations and evaluating visualizations. For the final part of the workshop, students will get a chance to work with a common data visualization tool, Tableau Desktop, creating visualizations such as a line graph of average temperature by month, a treemap of population by world regions, and a stacked bar graph of word frequencies in Romeo and Juliet.

For more information on Data Visualization, including topics covered in the workshop, and services offered by the libraries, see our Data Visualization Guide.
