Beyond the Graph: Exploring Interactive Data Visualization

In this workshop we will dissect the types of challenges that data visualization is uniquely suited to solve.

Note: The course will be held in English

A new understanding of data visualization

Stuart Card, an HCI Pioneer, once likened data visualization to what cars are for the feet: essential tools that should empower and enhance our understanding. However, the potential of data visualizations is often not fully realized, serving more as aesthetic enhancements than insightful instruments. 

This workshop aims to redefine your understanding of data visualization, transforming it from a simple presentation tool to a powerful interactive data exploration and analysis medium.

Join us for an engaging and informative workshop where we'll dissect the types of challenges that data visualization is uniquely suited to solve. 

We'll explore cutting-edge solutions and discuss real-world applications to understand where the frontier of research in data visualization lies today. Additionally, we will unveil three innovative yet underutilized techniques for visualizing time-oriented data that you can apply immediately.
