[ONLINE] Interpreting Data Visualizations and Maps

[ONLINE] Interpreting Data Visualizations and Maps Online

There are lots of ways that data can be communicated through visuals. Whether it is a complex web, concentrations of points on a map, or a good old-fashioned bar chart, data visualisations allow us to see trends and relationships in the data. But visuals can also play tricks on us. We have many biases that can lead us to misinterpret data in visualizations, either because the visualizations have been done badly or because the person publishing the data wants to mislead the viewer. In this workshop you will learn about common issues with data visualizations and mapping that lead us to misunderstand research, and how to make sure your own visuals tell the real story.
