This free one-day workshop, led by Professor Min Chen, Professor of Scientific Visualization at the University of Oxford’s e-Research Centre, will provide expert insight into the fast-moving and fast-growing area of visualization, which is key to meeting the challenge of understanding and communicating complex data in many different disciplines.

The course has been created by the Centre with the Institute for Environmental Analytics (IEA) and will be presented by world-leading experts who will introduce best practice and exemplars of visualizations for the environment.

Topics will include:

  • What is visualization really for?
  • What are the relative merits and limitations of important techniques in visual analytics?
  • What are the theoretical and technical challenges to be addressed?

The day will feature a series of presentations and demonstrations from professionals in the field, and will most benefit people working with complex data seeking to enhance their visual representations, to gain insights themselves and to communicate these to stakeholders.

Dr Jon Blower, Chief Technical Officer of the Institute for Environmental Analytics, will speak about the work he leads and give real world examples of successful collaborations with researchers, industry and governments, in the field of environmental data analytics.

The workshop runs from 9.30-16.00, finishing with a networking session, and will cover:

  • Introduction to visualization and visual analytics
  • Software to support visualization
  • Visualization in real world applications
