Synthesizing Data Visualization and User Experience

Abstract: The wealth of data available offers unprecedented opportunities for discovery and insight. 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 data visualization 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.
