Donuts and lollipops aren’t just fun snacks—they are also great visual displays. When it comes to reporting, we all know that data by itself is rarely useful. In order to be compelling, data must be arranged and presented for visual impact and intuitive interpretation. Simplicity and visual interest are the key ingredients for great charts. However, the type of chart research professionals should use is dependent upon the type of data being communicated and the intended impact.
When researchers fail to use the correct visual display, it often results in a failure to communicate the most important insights. Our Data Visualization training, taught by Instructor Kathryn Korostoff, mitigates this risk by providing attendees a broad set of visual displays from which to choose, and guidance on when to use them. We’ll help you move beyond stale and over-used visuals, such as pie charts, and introduce fresher donut, lollipop and multilevel pie charts as well as heat maps, gauges and more.
Class participants will also learn to apply lessons from infographic design to research reporting. Data drives insights, but only when it is presented in a clear and compelling manner. Our Data Visualization 101 course will help you to do just that.
