Session Description

Data visualization is becoming an increasingly common method of presenting large and complex data sets, but the principles of visual communication are not widely understood or practiced. Data visualization, like any other language, has its own vocabulary and syntax that can be used to more effectively communicate with others using visuals instead of words. This one-hour session will provide an overview of how data visualizations are constructed, how people tend to understand visual cues like shape and color, and how to use those cues to create visualizations that are both attractive and informative. 

This class will be taught by Chris Belter, Informationist, NIH Library.
