In the last few years, data visualization has become an essential tool for exploring, understanding, and utilizing vast data sets. The visual and interactive representation of abstract data creates new opportunities and possibilities for working with data.

Data visualizations offer a broad range of applications. They can be expert tools and playful explorations. They can provide insights and – at the same time – be entertaining and delightful. They help analysts to understand flows of money, goods, and information. Or they can provide visitors of a museum with an associative and captivating way to explore a cultural collection.

The aim of this workshop is to familiarize participants with the aesthetic and the methodological principles of data visualization. After a theoretical input, we will examine, discuss, and evaluate various visualization examples and strategies. The objective of the workshop is to get a better understanding of how data visualization works and how it can be applied to ongoing design projects.

The workshop will be conducted by Boris Müller from the Fachhochschule Potsdam in Germany. Boris Müller is a professor of interaction design and co-director of the UCLAB research group.
