(ROOM N102) C.S 4.5. Workshop: Understanding data through great data visualization. Powered by IE BUSINESS SCHOOL
Do you know the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words”? That statement has never been more accurate than in reference to a well thought out data visualization! Nowadays, large data volumes are generated daily at unprecedented rate from heterogeneous sources (e.g., health, government, social networks, marketing, financial) and that's why data visualization is becoming increasingly important. Data visualization makes huge amounts of data more accessible and understandable. These techniques help us to discover patterns, unveil trends and reveal unexpected insights, it is the only way we humans have to do so.
In this workshop, we will review an original approach to the theory of data visualization understanding it as a language with its own structure and grammar. Once we understand the "Grammar of the Graphics" we can find out what is under the hood of any graph. We will then apply this knowledge using macroeconomic variables in order not to be ignorant about what has happened and will happen in the world’s history.
