What we're about

Our mission is to foster visual understanding and presentation of data to tell stories that matter.

Whether your passion is business, arts, science, education, healthcare, economic development or community engagement, telling your story with visual analytic tools like Alteryx, Tableau, Power BI, and Excel can bring power to your message.

During our meeting we do things like:

• Learn/teach current visualization tools

• Discover open data sources

• Share storytelling techniques

• Deconstruct data visualizations

Open to all skill levels.

Contact us with topic ideas or if you are interested in presenting.

We will be using public data and learning on free platforms. Bring your laptop. We'll help you setup at first meeting.

Check out these free resources to get started with Excel, Tableau, Power BI, and Google Data Studio. Plus lists of Open Data to visualize and places to volunteer and practice your data visualization skills.
