Abstract: How do we design a more intuitive and useful data experience? This workshop focuses on approaches to turn data into actionable insights by combining principles from visual analytics and user experience design. Participants will be asked to think holistically about data visualizations and the people they serve. Through presentations and hands-on exercises, participants will learn how to choose and create data visualizations driven by user-oriented objectives.
