An introduction to data visualisation

Using a visualisation tool can help reveal patterns and insights not immediately apparent in raw data, and in turn allow you to efficiently share relevant data with your stakeholders.

In this one-hour webinar, James Akers, Digital Culture Network Tech Champion for Data Analytics and Insight, will show you how to bring together data from across your organisation and build charts, graphs and maps to tell a visual story.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What tools are available to bring your data to life
  • How to build different reports for different stakeholders and audiences in your organisation
  • When to use the right graphs and charts to tell a story
  • Why it is important to measure what you value, not value what you measure

The concepts and approaches to building charts and dashboards that James will cover will be applicable to all the most widely used data visualisation tools.
