Where: Map & Data Library, St. George Campus

Through a combination of lecture and activities, this three-hour workshop will use a data visualization workflow model to introduce students to best practices and guidelines for designing effective visualizations and evaluating visualizations. For the final part of the workshop, students will get a chance to work with a common data visualization tool, Tableau Desktop, creating visualizations such as a line graph of average temperature by month, a treemap of population by world regions, and a stacked bar graph of word frequencies in Romeo and Juliet.
