Transferable Skills Course: Data Visualization
The Data Visualisation workshop is divided into two distinct parts – principles and applications.

Workshop is now full. Please email to get on the waiting list.

  • Use Figures and Tables to effectively tell the story of their research.
  • Decide whether text, tables, or plots are most appropriate to convey the message of each result.
  • Choose the most appropriate plot type for their data.
  • Understand the science of perception and apply design principles to communicate their message clearly.
  • Use aesthetics to relate sensory attributes (colour, shape, etc.) to abstractions (enrichment, change-over-time).
  • Distinguish between graphics for publication and for data exploration.
