Keynote – Data Visualization: Effective Communication With Maps, Charts, and Graphs

Data visualization tools are improving at an accelerating pace, and they’ve become both more affordable – or free – and easier to use. However, that growth hasn’t been accompanied by an increased understanding of the principles and best practices to choose graphics to match the data and arrange graphics into data narratives. Alberto Cairo, Knight Chair in Visual Journalism at the School of Communication of the University of Miami, offers some guidance for nonprofits.
