Data has been represented visually for centuries but recent developments in web browser technology has let to a flourishing of sharing and creativity within the data visualisation community. Peter will be showing how visualisation can not only make data beautiful, but that it can provide valuable insights into data sets. He will show a number of examples of web-based data visualisation and talk about the tools used to create them.
About the speaker
Peter Cook’s interest in data visualisation probably started at school when he drew his first bar chart. Through his engineering degree he always enjoyed explaining difficult concepts using visuals and he now designs and develops data visualisations for a living through his company Animated Data (www.animateddata.co.uk).
Sorry that the video isn’t very good quality, the small camera we were using really couldn’t cope with the low light conditions needed for seeing the slides. Please try and look past that and listen to the talk, as Peter gave us plenty of great information and advice in it.
