Designing Data Visualizations

Whether you’re displaying a simple data set or a robust collection of aggregated information, we need data to tell a story with actionable insight beyond the 1’s and 0’s. The era of pie and bar charts has come and gone; these traditional visualizations alone are insufficient. Now is the time of data visualized on a rich canvas. A canvas that not only informs, but immerses you in information in much the same way that your favorite book immerses you in its narrative.

In this talk, Corey will discuss:

  • How data visualization can lead to data exploration
  • Creating an experience with information
  • New models of data visualization
  • Telling a story through data
