Good data visualisation can help us tell powerful stories and get our information across to people in an interesting and clear way. But it can be difficult to do well, and there are a baffling array of potential data visualisation tools out there.

Overall aim

During this session we will be joined by Professor Alasdair Rutherford from the University of Stirling as we:

  •  look at why and when to use data visualisation
  •  explore some of the data visualisation tools that are available, including free options
  •  showcase some popular tools and different ways organisations have used data visualisation
  •  find out what tools (if any) people currently use 
  •  connect people and encourage skill sharing

This webinar will look at the when and why of data visualisation and showcase some popular data visualisation tools. It also aims to connect people in the voluntary sector who are interested in bringing their data and information to life, facilitating discussion and networking/skills sharing.

The webinar is being run in partnership with the Scottish Third Sector Research Forum.

Who was the event aimed at?

This session is for anyone working in voluntary sector and/or interested in sector data and data visualisation. It is suitable for those newer to data visualisation who want to know a bit more, and more experienced researchers and data users who want to share knowledge and connect with others.
