Getting started with data visualisation

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel this event. This session will be run again in the new year. Please contact researchdatasupport@sydney.edu.au if you have any questions.

Have you ever looked at a figure in a journal article and thought "What on earth does that even mean?"... We certainly have! This session on data visualisation will get back to basics and give you some best practice advice so that you can create visualisations with your research data that communicate your point and are easily understood by everyone.

  • Understand different purposes of and audiences for data visualisations

  • Understand the strengths and limitations of different media for visualising data
  • Gain knowledge of the tools and resources available to support visualisation activities
