Data Visualization Best Practices, including Introduction to Tableau Public

Being able to effectively communicate your data to an audience is a necessary part of any project. How to harness visualization tools to tell a story will be presented in this short workshop. We will discuss how different types of graphs and charts are perceived and how they can be used to answer different questions. Tableau Public is a free data visualization tool. You can create interactive graphs, dashboards, maps and tables from virtually any data. You need to create a free account in order to save your work.

Emma Slayton, CLIR Fellow for Data Visualization and Curation, Carnegie Mellon University Libraries
Boris Michev, GIS & Urban Studies Librarian, ULS
