Data Visualisation Masterclass

Date: 13/06/2017
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Address: Charles Perkins Centre, The University of Sydney|Sydney|NSW|2006|AU

Do you work with large, complex datasets? Data visualisation can help. Using principles of human visual perception with modern methods and tools, you can create insightful visual representations of complex data, as well as compelling visualisations for communication.

However, there are few opportunities to receive training in these newly emerging visualisation techniques. For this reason, The University of Sydney, The Garvan Institute of Medical Research and Vivid Sydney are excited to announce the Data Visualisation Masterclass, a one-day tour of state-of-the-art methods, taught by internationally acknowledged experts in data visualisation.

The masterclass will teach you principles and practices for turning data into insightful visualisations that tell compelling stories. The class is for anyone working with data, including communicators, scientists, programmers, designers, and visual artists.

The key themes of the masterclass include:

  • Visual perception principles - dos and don'ts
  • Key data visualisation methods and tools - a practical guide
  • Using visualisation and animation for storytelling
It is recommended to bring your own laptop (no specific software required) — each seat has power and a table.
