About This Workshop

The ever-increasing computational capacity has enabled us to acquire, process and analyze larger data-sets and information. Data visualisation is a science and an art which can compress and encode data in ways to aid the human capacity to comprehend, retain and make data-driven decisions.

Interactive data visualisation takes this to another level by allowing us to go beyond visual abstraction and the bounds of physical or pixel space. There has been exciting developments in the tools space for rapidly creating interactive data visualisation over the last few years. Therefore most data analyst and data scientists can now use open source tools in JavaScript, R and Python to create these. At the end of this bootcamp, you too will be able to create interactive data visualisation using these open source tools.

Takeaways

  • Learn the principles of interactive data visualisation including grammar, types, colour, annotation, flow, animation, interaction etc
  • Understand different approaches - static graphics, web based interactive graphics, interactive data products - for creating data visualisation
  • Explore using visualisation in different statistical context - exploration, modeling, and communication to gain insight from data
  • Gain an experience of using simple tools like visdown - interactive for creating data visualisation for exploration and communication.

Prereqs & Preparation

  • Participant need to know how Markdown works. If you don’t know, don’t worry. Markdown is extremely simple. Please take this short 10 minute tutorial - Markdown Tutorial and you should be fine.
  • No prior experience in creating interactive data visualisation is expected to attend the workshop. Some experience in creating static charts and graphs in Excel or Powerpoint would be good enough.
  • No programming knowledge is required for the course. Though a basic understanding of how a web page and the browser works (essentially html, css and javascript) would be helpful for the participants.

Software Requirements

We will largely be using visdown for the workshop which runs on the web. And a standalone version would be shared ahead of the workshop. Each participants should bring along a laptop with following software installed - - A modern browser, preferably Google Chrome - MS Excel or Google Sheets (Please create a free google account) - Notepad++ (for Windows Machine)

Additional instructions would be shared closer to the workshop.
