Marvelous Chartverse: The Superhero's Guide to Chart Usage Charts and maps help people understand complex data, identify trends and patterns, and tell a compelling story. However, most people struggle with finding the right chart to represent their data effectively. To make data valuable to your audience, you must understand how to frame it contextually and visualize it in a way that can be intuitively understood. And if you’re using the wrong chart, you’re wasting both your audience’s time and yours. LiveStories has worked with over 100 government organizations, non-profits, and universities, helping them tell the real story behind their data using engaging charts, graphs, and maps. This hands-on workshop and networking event will dive into communicating complex information with easy-to-understand and aesthetically-pleasing charts and graphs. Participants will learn when to use the correct chart types and to ask themselves “what story does my data tell?” Knowing this will help you choose the appropriate chart for the type of data you are working with. Hands-on workshop highlights include: A technical deep dive into charting techniques. However, you don't need to be a chart expert to attend this workshop. Reviewing 10+ chart types, when to use that chart, how to design the chart better, and common mistakes to avoid. Understanding dimensions and measures and how these impact chart selection. Suggesting some less-common charts that you can add to your portfolio. Who Should Attend? Are you responsible for representing data in your job?
