MT5 and WT5 Open Data Visualization: Tools and Techniques to Better Report Data

Description: There is an increasing need among the research community to make data and research more accessible and easier to understand. This is bringing a tactical shift in the way researchers communicate their data and its relationships. The emerging styles of charts, tables, graphics and visuals are changing the course of how data visualizations explain research and its context. In this session, we will explore some simple open-source tools and design techniques to create interactive data visualizations so participants can better report their data and analysis. We will draw a parallel from the tech and media world to determine if some of these data visualization techniques can be applied in scholarly communications.
This course will have two components:
The first part will offer a detailed introduction to a few existing techniques of data visualization along with an overview of various data visualization tools, which researchers can easily adopt in their work cycle.
The second part will dive into a hands-on experience of visualizing a few datasets. Participants are encouraged to bring their own datasets or pick a few from the samples designed for the session. We will divide into groups to build, iterate and refine a few interesting data visualizations and stories.
