Exploring and understanding data through the theories of Data Visualization

13:00- 15:00, Thursday, 15 February 2024

Badia, Sala del Capitolo and online  [register for event]

Organised by the EUI Library and EMIF for the entire EUI community, this workshop dives into the theory and practice of Data Visualization.

Data visualisation refers to the communication of data and information through visual representations, such as charts, tables, diagrams, plots, maps etc. Translating vast amounts of information into a visual context makes it easier to process, absorb, and identify patterns, trends or outliers.

In a world that is flooded with data, we are constantly presented with charts and infographics on social media or traditional media outlets. Having a trained and critical eye on this topic, allows us to quickly identify the key insights but also potential misleading traits. This session will cover the main theories behind the creation of effective visualisations, while emphasising the dos and don’ts with practical examples.

The session is provided by Visualitics representatives, Italian experts in the Tableau data visualization tool.
