STRIVE Learning Lab 31. Bring information alive: An introduction to data visualisation

Abstract

All researchers need to produce tables and charts. This Learning Lab will show you how to create strong, handsome graphics from your own data.br/>
From simple line charts to elaborate interactive maps, data visualisation is an increasingly popular way to convey complex information and reach audiences within and beyond academia. By communicating messages clearly, effective visualisations have the potential to alter perceptions, influence people and bring about change.br/>
This Learning Lab, by Rebecca Wolfe from the ReSyst consortium, introduces data visualisation. It demonstrates the value of presenting data visually and provides basic tips on how to make charts and graphs more effective. The webinar showcases some free online tools to create infographics and charts.
