The Art of Data Visualization: Art or Knowledge?

The Art of Data Visualization: Art or Knowledge?



"The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see."

- John Tukey


Is data visualization art? Is it knowledge? Or is it some combination with a few more elements thrown in? Join us on April 11 & 12, 2017 for a series of events that explores these questions and showcases examples from a range of data and data visualization practitioners. As effective communication of scholarship to a broad range of audiences becomes increasingly important, the prominent role of data visualization skills in our scholarly toolkit also becomes more evident. Come and experience effective data visualization that combines elements of good visual design, research rigor, plus that little something extra and the difference it can make in communicating your scholarship.
