Data Visualisation 101 - Representing Data (Part 1)

The way in which we communicate and digest information has changed. Relaying information and analysis simply as text is no longer enough, which explains the dramatic increase in the use and popularity of data visualisation in recent years. Free or inexpensive and user-friendly software and tools are now widely available, meaning that anyone can visualise data - however, this does not mean that everyone can create an effective data visualisation. In this mini-series, participants learn best practices in data visualisation and design process. The first session focuses on different ways to represent data and how to choose the right one. The second session explores design principles and discusses 7 steps for an effective infographic.
