On September 5, I gave my “Quick Tools for Data Visualization” workshop as part of our workshop series. I wanted to share resources from that workshop. Due to various constraints, we are unable to provide workshops through video, web event, etc. at this point, but I can share the fairly detailed document I distributed. In the workshop, we talked about why people use data visualization as both part of and a primary methodology in research and teaching projects, and looked at three tools (very quickly): Voyant Tools, Google Fusion Tables, and Viewshare.
Here’s my data visualization workshop handout for anyone who missed the workshop and is interested in reading more. We hope to put up similar documents for use from future workshops.
