Data Visualization Webinar Series, Part 2 of 4
One of the first steps in the data visualization process is to select an appropriate chart type for your dataset. Do you feel like you’ve exhausted the typical charts like bar charts and line charts? If so, this chart-choosing webinar is for you! We’ll discuss pros, cons, and tools for creating more than 30 different styles of charts. You’ll get exposed to new styles that are sure to make your data shine, like dot plots, small multiples layouts, Sankey diagrams, network maps, and geographic maps, as well as options for visualizing your organization’s qualitative data. We’ll conclude with strategies for arranging charts into dashboards and infographics. This webinar will increase your data visualization vocabulary and boost your confidence in choosing correct chart types, so that your viewers will understand your data at a glance and retain information for the long run.
Date and Time
The webinar will be held Wednesday, September 2, 2015 from 1 – 2 pm Eastern (2 – 3 pm Central).
