Seeing Data: Visualization with NYC 311 Requests facilitated by TWO-N

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This workshop will give participants a hands-on experience engaging in the creative, delightful, and sometimes messy work of data visualization. We will start with a brief introduction to the concept of “grammar of graphics” to understand the connection between data and visual elements. Then participants will dive into the NYC 311 data set and start brainstorming research questions that they will explore through visualization. Finally, participants will spend time creating their visualizations using their choice between a computer (bring your own) or paper (provided). Participants will leave with specific knowledge about the city that they have uncovered from 311 data, and visualization skills that will make them smarter makers and savvier consumers of data graphics!
