Data visualization can be considered as a field of communication with a marked transdisciplinary nature. In their manuals abound the contributions of doctors, nurses, civil engineers, mathematicians, physicists, chemists, geographers, philosophers and, occasionally, designers. Today, the necessary skills range from statistics to programming, journalism and visual communication, not to mention the specific knowledge of the discipline from which the analyzed data comes from. We propose a practical and theoretical approach to the processes of data representation. In the workshop we will try to put in common the criteria and the necessary tools to work with timelines, distribution curves, relationship graphs, cartographies and other rhetorical figures, to approach the processes, identify indicators, build data architecture and find solutions that allow us to communicate some elements of the complexity that surrounds us. The activities will be developed in a context halfway between analog and digital and do not require any prior knowledge, although we’ll count on everything you can contribute from your experience.
