Capturing Audiences with Data Visualization Systems and Pre-attentive Features

Illinois Webmasters’s “September 2021 Workshop” on September 22, 2021.


Abstract

Data visualization has nearly unlimited potential but is often only as valuable as the story you are able to tell and the audience you can capture to see you story. In this interactive workshop, you’ll learn the foundations of data visualization. we will discover the power the power of pre-attentive features together, and then will nerd out with visualizations that have gathered national attention (or virality) using what we discovered. The workshop will finish by exploring creating a new visualization using a popular web-based visualization language (d3.js).
