Visualization is an immensely powerful way to explore and communicate data, tapping into our visual processing skills to make all types of data accessible, clear, and engaging. Information presented graphically is much more memorable and persuasive than using numbers or text. While data visualization is surging in business use alongside the rise of Big Data and analytics, many business professionals haven’t had the opportunity to learn and apply these compelling techniques. Through a review of key visualization design principles, examples of real-world data displayed graphically, and resources for application, this session will show why and how to expand your data visualization toolset and techniques.
