Lecture and Hands-on Workshop
Open Data Mapping: Increasing the Impact of Open Data through Visualisation and Communication
Time: 8,30 - 10,00
Chair: Ana Kuveždić Divjak (University of Zagreb, Faculty of Geodesy, Croatia)
We kindly ask all colleagues who will be participating in person to bring their laptops for this workshop.
You have accessed the open data sets you have been searching for, but how can you actually use that data to pursue questions, uncover patterns, make predictions, assess future changes, answer policy questions, and more? One solution would be to use data visualisation techniques and turn your raw data into visual information.
By mapping data attributes to visual properties such as position, size, shape, and colour, visualisation designers use their perceptual skills to help users see and understand trends, outliers, and patterns in the data. However, data can be visualised in many different ways. As you will learn in this workshop, some visualisations are more effective than others, depending on the context and target audience. Tables, for example, are great for showing one-dimensional outliers like the top ten, but they are poor for comparing multiple dimensions at once. Line charts are particularly useful for showing trends over time, while bar charts are perfect for comparing categorical data. The power of maps is that they reconnect the data to our physical world. Without their geospatial component, many open data sets would have much less impact.
This workshop takes a hands-on approach to geospatial data visualisation through a series of practical examples. We will show you where to find and how to access open datasets and how to handle common data formats such as CSV, GeoJSON, and Shapefiles. You’ll work through data attributes and map features using open technologies and open GIS tools. Along the way, we will cover key concepts such as map projections and coordinate reference systems, attributes and features and encoding data with colours. We will cover key design principles and best practises in cartography and geospatial data visualisation and guide you on how to approach attractive, effective, and ethical data visualisation design.
