Data visualization is widely used to communicate agriculture, nutrition, and health data. However, a graph or dashboard do not necessarily inspire action. Choosing effective, accurate, and compelling ways to visualize data based on key messages and target audience is a vital skill for anyone who wants to use data visualization to influence action. The session will share concrete skills on how to visualize data based on communication goals and existing data visualization and human cognition research. The training complements existing DataDENT Tableau Public tutorials that participants can freely explore following the session.
