Visualisation as collaboration

How can we use visualisation as a tool for collaboration? Insight is best when shared; when every stakeholder not only understands the end result, they’re informed about the context and impact. In a nutshell, they understand “What does this mean?”.

This is a proposal I submitted to Joining The Dots, a symposium to share data visualisation knowledge and techniques.

Visualisation is communication. Making communication clear, concise and unambiguous promotes collaboration and discussion around complex and nuanced data. In my talk, I cover visualising data to promote collaboration and as an antidote to reams of text.

I focus on examples such as visualising metadata like the 360Giving data standard to help adopters understand how the standard fits together and the story they can tell with their data.
