Data and visualisation

Data visualisation is currently an extremely active and critical aspect in research, teaching, and development. The main purpose of data visualisation is to communicate information clearly and effectively by means of graphical representation. However, this does not mean that data visualisation must be boring for its functional purpose, or extremely complicated to look gorgeous. In order to effectively communicate ideas and concepts, aesthetic and functions need to go hand in hand, and by visually communicating key aspects and features, we get deep insights into fairly sparse and complex datasets.

To help our researchers make the most of their data and take advantage of tools, we have been working on Dataviz.Shef, a multi-pronged initiative to provide tools, training and build a community around interactive data visualisation at TUoS.
