What we're about

Data Visualization DC is a non-profit professional group that meets monthly to discuss data visualization, data communication, infographics, exploratory data analysis, charts and graphs, perceptual psychology, and more! Our members are data journalists, data scientists, business intelligence professionals, and others who tell stories and persuade with data. Meeting topics are varied and range from tutorials on basic concepts and their applications, to success stories from local practitioners, to discussions of tools, new technologies, and best practices. All are welcome -- to attend, to meet others, and to present their work!

Data Visualization DC is a Program of Data Community DC, Inc.

Do you ever feel like you want to work on your data skills or portfolio, but never find the time? This event may be for you --
This Saturday, we will create a virtual space to participate in the Storytelling with Data Challenge together. We invite everyone to come and talk through their ideas or just work alongside others.

About this month's challenge:
Pick at least two of the following constraints, and create a visualization within those restrictions.

  • Complete your visualization in an hour
  • Use a tool you've never used before
  • Use a single hue, or use only black and gray
  • Create something that is easily consumed on a mobile device
