Open Visualisation Workshop

Visual representation is a time-tested way of making large, complex bodies of information manageable – whether in the form of maps, timelines, graphs, or charts. Emerging digital technologies have revolutionised what is possible in this domain.

This is an informal, hands-on workshop for those who work with, or are interested in, open-source visualisation technologies, whether based on the web or on the desktop, whether for data or other kinds of knowledge.
