What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in Data Visualisation. This could be within data science or business intelligence, but also creative coding and art projects that have data as a medium, and story-driven data visualisations.

Meetups will be informal with plenty of time for networking, as well as some presentations from the group, where we will discuss inspiration, methods, tools, and anything else we find interesting.

Material from the events will be made available on https://speakerdeck.com/datavizcph

This meet-up is inspired by the Data Visualisation Society where the organiser team met. (join here: https://www.datavisualizationsociety.com/ )

Everyone is welcome!

Curiouser and curiouser: 70 Very Different Visualizations of Alice in Wonderland

Link visible for attendees

Our June online event will feature a talk from Researcher and Visualization Designer Richard Brath! (NOTE: This event will be recorded)

DESCRIPTION: Don't get stuck on WordClouds. Alice in Wonderland is a wildly popular book and many people have created very different visualizations. As visualization practitioners, we can learn a lot with a bit of curiosity into the many possible ways that people have visualized Wonderland, whether researchers, artists or student assignments. With so many visualization possibilities, Alice might be inclined to ask: "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" to which I'll provide many possibilities and a few pointers.

Hosted by the Dallas-Fort Worth DataViz Meetup Group, this global event is being shared with multiple DataViz Meetup groups around the globe.
