Course on Information Design and Data Visualization
Bigger and more complex data-sets have led to an increased interest in the field of data visualization, or graphic representation of data. To accurately present data visually is a powerful way to communicate to a more general audience.
With an ever increasing load of information it is imperative that we as researchers find effective ways to communicate our results to everybody, and not just our fellow researchers trained in epidemiology. I wanted to learn how to use these tools to effectively communicate results from epidemiological research, and therefore attended a one week curse in Information Design and Data Visualization at University of the arts London Central Saint Martins this summer.
