Citizen science projects collect data. First, we will discuss why and how to use that data to meaningfully engage & motivate participants by creating data visualizations. Next, we learn about data viz as a communication device and sketch prototypes for an interactive data visualization using your data, design principles, and the annotation layer. Finally, we’ll touch on tools for turning your prototype into an interactive data visualization. After discussing technologies for designing and delivering various types of visualizations, we’ll explore some free, easily configurable (but slightly limiting) tools before diving into the basics of d3, one of the most popular open source frameworks for bespoke data visualizations on the web.

Intended Audience: TBD

Fee: $50/team; pre-registration required; limited to 20 teams - SOLD OUT
