Please join us for this inaugural meeting of the Chicago Data Visualization Group. Andy Kirk will be discussing "The 8 Hats of Data Visualization". Here is the description from his website:
The 8 Hats of Data Visualization – The nature of data visualization as a truly multi-disciplinary subject introduces many challenges to those wishing to achieve mastery. You might be a creative but how are your analytical skills? Good at closing out a design but how about the initial research and data sourcing? In this talk we will learn about the many different ‘hats’ a visualization designer needs to wear in order to effectively deliver against these demands. Whether a single person will fulfill these roles, or a team collaboration will be set up to cover all bases, this presentation will help you understand the duty requirements of any visualization problem context.
