Guidelines for Data Visualisation

What’s your data visualization vegetables? What’s your candy? This session will look at data visualization theory and practice of hot data visualization topics such as: how can you choose which chart to choose and when?

  • How can you best structure your dashboard?
  • What about pie charts? What is the fuss about, and when are they best used?
  • Color blindness – how can you cater for the 1 out of 12 color blind males (and not forgetting the 1 out of 100 color blind females?)
  • To 3D or not to 3D? Why is it missing in Power View? And any other data visualization topics you care to mention! Come along for dataviz fun, and to learn the “why” along with practical advice.
