PNR Rendezvous: Tips and Tricks for Learning Data Visualization

Class Details

Data visualization in the health sciences can help reveal insights and trends that might otherwise go unnoticed. A clear visualization can convey more information than an endless spreadsheet. However, learning new tools can be challenging, especially if it's your first time tackling a subject. Data visualization tools, in particular, can have high learning curves and it is easy to get overwhelmed with all of the resources and tutorials available. This PNR Rendezvous session will discuss tips and tricks for learning data visualization. The tools we will be focusing on are Tableau and ArcGIS.
