Making Data Easy to Digest
Good graphical displays of data communicate ideas with clarity, precision, and efficiency. Bad graphical displays distort or obscure the data, make it harder to understand or compare, or otherwise thwart the communicative effect which the graph should convey. With a solid foundation in data visualisation techniques, you can ensure your audience grasps the insights from your data correctly and quickly.Course Objectives
During the workshop we will focus on:
Identifying the relevant data to present - Don’t try to make all the data relevant, present the relevant data correctly.
Choosing the right tool for the job - Know when to use which graph depending on the message you are trying to convey.
Draw attention to the message within the data - The whole is different to the sum of its parts - show it!
Step by step guide to data storytelling - Learn the key ingredients to storytelling to set the stage for your data presentation.
