This workshop will provide post-graduate and doctoral researchers in the digital humanities an overview of best practice and methods relating to data visualisation and structured data presentation. As a companion workshop to the data visualisation for analysis this workshop builds on the elements of the visualisation cycle by examining the basic tenets that inform the data presentation process. We will explore a number of tools available to assist in the process and to gain an appreciation of where you can look for more information. This interactive session will allow participants to learn from others experiences and to increase your own appreciation of how data visualisation can aid in the communication of your research efforts.

Topics will include:

• Data Visualisation for Presentation versus Analysis
• The Process and Ethos of Presenting Data
• Tools and Methods Used for Data Visualisation for Presentation in the Humanities
• Directions for Future Exploration

There are no technical prerequisites for this workshop. It is intended to be introductory in nature and aid those currently assembling or considering collecting data for academic research use. Wifi access will be available.

Registration is essential and spaces are limited and no-cost spaces are offered on a first come first served basis beginning 8 March 2012.
