Workshops: Data visualisation

Skilled data visualisation can make an important contribution to many domains, from surveillance to research and policy setting. For example they can facilitate a quick identification of clusters, trends, gaps, or outliers and enable users to visually locate relationships and interactions in an easier way compared to traditional metadata tables. Further, the transition from static to interactive and animated visualisations to communicate data provides an exciting expansion of the tools and methods available. Most importantly, visualising data well (especially in space and time) can impress, enthuse and engage key audiences, i.e. decision-makers, industry partners, key stakeholders and the public.

As a team, we deliver a wide range of data visualisation workshops which we customise for each audience. If you are interested in a data visualisation workshop for your organisation, please contact Uli at
