DataVis/Infographics­ Study Group

Let's keep this one simple :-) Everyone bring a dataviz or infographic and we'll take a look at them to see what works and doesn't work. I'll set up a few whiteboards and for each data viz we look at, we'll take turns re-sketching it to make it work better. Hmm...maybe we'll even divide up into 2-3 teams and see what each group comes up with. I like it!

"bring a data viz": bring the url and we'll look it up or email the url or image to me and I'll set it up ahead of time.

See you on the 20th!

    Thanks everyone who came - really fun to dig into the data visualizations and try to re-design them to make them show the data/stories we wanted to see. Hey Noah! We used ManyEyes for this session - very cool tool :-)

    Sorry I missed the meeting! Darn it. Fishing with my son took precedence and it was a beautiful evening, but I hope to see you next time.

    New to the area but interested in the group. Is there a Link station near the building?

      The International District station lets you off right next to the plaza area of our meeting location. :)

    Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow evening! Here's info on parking and getting into the building:

    PARKING
    No soccer, football or baseball games so on-street parking should be a breeze. Many street parking areas in the ID are now free after 6 PM so that's probably your best bet.

    Also easy to take a bus to 5th & Jackson or the bus tunnel to the International District stop.

    FINDING 605 5th AVE South
    There are 4 buildings in this 'office park'. Find the building with the Starbucks; 605 is the building directly south.

    I will be in the lobby of 605 5th Ave S at 6:15 to let you into the building. At 6:30 PM to we'll take the elevators up to the 4th floor. I'll send someone back to the lobby at about 6:40 to collect anyone who arrives late. After that, please call me at[masked] and we'll send someone to fetch you.

    haven't attended a meeting for a while so it's like i'm being reintroduced to the idea again and excited to learn something new.
