Introduction to Data Visualization Data visualization (or data viz for short) has rapidly developed into a huge area of interest for a broad group of users including researchers, businesses, and anyone looking to effectively communicate a large amount of information to a specific audience. If you have a research question that utilizes data, data visualization and its associated tools can help you analyze and make sense of the information you have gathered. In this presentation, participants will:

• Be introduced to what data visualization is and why it is both an important and relevant skill to learn in this day and age.

• Learn more about the types of data visualizations available to choose from and reasons for using specific types of visualization.

• Take a look at some resources available for learning more about different types of data visualizations and how to create them.

• Explore some of the tools used to create data visualizations in a variety of fields.

• Watch a video showcasing what a great visualization and presentation can look like.

• Gain some useful tips on how to better design your next visualization.

• Find out what the Ohio State University Libraries has to offer in terms of data visualization support.
