Session Abstract:  Clear, coherent data visualizations begin with a solid understanding of the basic structural elements of charts and graphs. In this session, attendees will get hands-on experience working with and understanding those basic structural elements through a new data visualization materials kit. Armed with Lysy's designs, Evergreen's research, scissors, string, and other materials, attendees will build and experiment with various visualizations to identify those which most compellingly represent given sets of data. The activities will be embedded within a larger discussion of data relationships and how to know what type of visualization to use, when. Attendees will leave with a fresh set of designs and a new chart chooser handout.
