Intro to Data Visualization and Tableau

October 28 at 1:30pm-3:30pm in Kline Biology Tower, C27 (Computer classroom in the Center for Science and Social Science Information)

This workshop will familiarize you with key issues in data visualization. In addition to covering the fundamental principles behind effective visualizations, we will also touch on common pitfalls that result in confusing or misleading graphics. During the workshop, participants will gain hands-on experience using Tableau — interactive, data visualization software — to produce dynamic, compelling visualizations for all kinds of data.

Space is limited for the workshop; to register, please visit the YUL Instruction Calendar. Lab computers and sample data will be available for use.
