The Art of Data Visualization 2016

The Art of Data Visualization 2016



"Graphical excellence is the well-designed presentation of interesting data – a matter of substance, of statistics, and of design."

- Edward Tufte

Join us on April 5-7, 2016 for a series of events designed to showcase the art and science of effective data visualization.  A key aspect of scholarship in the 21st century is the collection and analysis of ever-growing data sets, both within and across various subject areas.  We are tasked with discerning hidden patterns in gargantuan quantities of data, as well as communicating our findings to research communities, policy makers, and the general public.  The skillful employment of artistic design and analytical rigor allows us to create effective and meaningful displays of the complex relationships revealed in the data that surrounds us. 

Questions may be directed to datavizweek@libraries.cul.columbia.edu.

Our official Twitter hashtag is: #CUdataviz
