How to See and Understand Big Data

Visual analysis is an iterative process that exploits the power of the human visual system to help people work with all kinds of data. When data is big, people must overcome the challenges of wide data, tall data and data from multiple sources. In this talk, Dr. Mackinlay will describe how people working with data can address these challenges. The key technique is to use multiple coordinated views of data during visual analysis and storytelling with data.

You'll learn:

  • What research and practice have taught us about designing great visualizations and dashboards
  • Fundamental principles for designing effective coordinated views for yourself and others
  • How to systematically analyze data from multiple databases using your visual system
