Data Visualization

Data Visualization

Concept: Data visualization encompasses a wide range of practices focused on the transformation of quantitative or otherwise segmented information into visual forms to convey information and sometimes provide interactive engagement with data sources. This topic also includes the creation of data itself, and histories and theories of information processing. 

The Duke Libraries Data and Visualization Sciences, as well as the Social Science Research Institute provide workshops and consulting around data visualization. Some courses in Art, Art History & Visual Studies and Information Science + Studies also provide opportunities to learn more about data visualization and analysis.
