CDH Basics: Foundations of data visualisation
New

Tue 8 Mar 2022

Description

The impact of well-crafted data visualisations has been well-documented historically. Florence Nightingale famously used charts to make her case for hospital hygiene in the Crimean War, while Dr John Snow’s bar charts of cholera deaths in London helped convince the authorities of the water-borne nature of the disease. However, as information designer Alberto Cairo notes, charts can also lie. This introductory CDH Basics session presents the basic principles of data visualisation for researchers who are new to working with quantitative data.

Target audience

CDH Basics sessions are open to staff and graduate students who want to learn and apply digital methods and use digital tools in their research.
