The Design of Time
In data visualisation, the most compelling demonstration of storytelling is surely the representation of time series data. But what are the different techniques for doing this?
In this talk, Leeds based data visualisation specialist Andy Kirk will navigate through the spectrum of creative ways to visualise time series data. Examining everything from timelines, sequences, radial displays, geo-temporal and cartesian methods, you’ll learn about the classics and the contemporaries, developing an increased appreciation for the myriad options to consider for your storytelling challenges.
