Foundry Chat: Data Visualization I

Posted By Stephen Rektenwald on Sep 18, 2017 in Innovation Foundry |


The Innovation Foundry has begun a three-part series on data visualization for the Fall semester as a part of our Foundry Chats. I began the series looking at the importance of data that conveys its meaning. We began by looking at the fundamentals as presented in a Venn Diagram by David McCandless. His ample supply of great imagery in his books Knowledge Is Beautiful and The Visual Miscellaneum as well as his website Informationisbeautiful.net provide examples galore as to what makes a good infographic. In future sessions, we will look at how to wireframe an infographic based on the data and then how to carry out creating some simple infographics. Check out the events tab to find the next session and join us.
