Data Visualization

No matter your discipline, good visual design can help you more clearly communicate your findings to a larger audience, make comparisons, and show trends, gaps, and outliers in information.

From maps and charts to immersive 3-D environments, we’ll help you transform your data into a visual representation that’s purposeful, relevant, accurate, and meaningful. 

We offer:

  • Open workshops
  • In-course instruction
  • Individual consultations
  • Advanced hardware and software
  • Help finding data sets and choosing a type of visualization
