Data Visualization Masterclass

Do you work with large, complex datasets? Data visualisation can help. Using principles of human visual perception with modern methods and tools, you can create insightful visual representations of complex data, as well as compelling visualisations for communication.

However, there are few opportunities to receive training in these newly emerging visualisation techniques. For this reason, we are excited to announce the Data Visualisation Masterclass, a one-day tour of state-of-the-art methods, taught by internationally renowned experts in data visualisation: biomedical animator Janet Iwasa (University of Utah, USA), and data scientists Martin Krzywinski (Genome Sciences Centre, Canada) and Seán O'Donoghue (CSIRO and Garvan Institute).

The masterclass teaches principles and practices for turning data into insightful visualisations that tell compelling stories. The class is designed for anyone working with data, including communicators, scientists, programmers, designers, and visual artists.

The key themes of the masterclass include:

  • Visual perception principles - dos and don'ts
  • Key data visualization methods and tools - a practical guide
  • Using visualization and animation for storytelling

The event is organized by the VIZBI lab from the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and CSIRO's Data61.
