Designing Visualization

Data visualization is the art of turning large quantities of data into influential tools. How far can data scientists push the limits between representing the reality and falling under the spell of creative representation? Join our discussion on data visualization as we explore how to create beautiful experiences.

Speakers include:
- Shan Carter, Interactive Graphics Editor for The New York Times will tell us about his data visualization work during the presidential campaign.
- Wes Grubbs, Owner at Pitch Interactive, a technology studio focused on data visualization and co-organizer of the Amazing Eyeo Festival. Wes recently moved to the Bay Area!

- Moderated by Sha Hwang, Design Technologist at Trulia, Co-founded Movity in 2010 to map city data. Sold to Trulia, he builds their interactive maps on crime and home prices.

    It was my first ever Meetup and I thought the panel of speakers was excellent. I am an astronomer moving into the aera of data visualization, and I was inspired!

    If someone has two places available for carpooling, especially for going back to SF at any BART station, it would be awesome. Even between the San Antonio Caltrain station and the venue would help a lot. Thanks!

    Any chance anyone attending might be driving down from SF and wouldn't mind carpooling from AT&T park area?
