Make Your Point: Basic Principles of Data Visualization Design
Data visualizations are everywhere these days: social media, infographics, data dashboards, and trendy organizational reports. A good data visualization communicates dense amounts of information quickly and effectively. A bad one is a hodgepodge that creates confusion. To create effective data visualizations, you need to know the basic principles of chart design. These principles apply whether you are using sophisticated data visualization technology or tried-and-true Excel. In this webinar, we will describe a process for developing a chart that helps you make your point without making a mess. (This webinar provides 1 credit of MLA continuing education.)
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM Eastern
Date: July 19
Location: Online webinar. Call-in instruction will be provided to registered participants a week prior to the training session.
