Transparency Series Workshop: Data Visualization with Agnes Change, ProPublica
February 16 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm EST
Data visualization has become a multipurpose tool in journalistic practice. It allows us to see patterns in data and to discover new stories, as well as to insightfully communicate our findings. In this day-long workshop, Agnes Chang from ProPublica will guide us through basic data visualization tools and skills, delving into the design process and some of the graphic strategies that make the best data visualization pieces so successful. During the day we will touch upon the multiple aspects of data visualization: from exploring and cleaning up a dataset, to crafting the narrative of the piece, to designing its graphic aspects, to coding its interactive elements.
Agnes Chang is an editorial experience designer at ProPublica.
