Data Visualization is Key to Understanding

Communicating knowledge has become paramount as consumers, clients, and citizens wade through data. Visualization is the science of communicating inference from data analysis concisely and accurately. This workshop leverages Tableau as a tool for creating visually appealing and persuasive data stories.

Topics include:

  • Basic concepts of visualization
  • Tableau tools
  • Intermediate visualization in R and Python

Instructor

Brent Never (Ph.D., Indiana University) is an Associate Professor of Public Affairs at the Henry W. Bloch School of Management. His research considers the spatial and geographic implications of a decentralized human service system. Using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and spatial regression methods, he has worked to identify communities underserved by human services. He has also worked to highlight clusters of financially distressed nonprofit organizations, those most likely to go out of business in the near future raising the question as to who is served by financially ‘sick’ human service providers.
