Data Visualization and Data Storytelling Best Practices using RAWGraphs and Figma - previously recorded eStudy 119

This eStudy has sold out. 


Rebeca Pop

This webinar will provide an overview of data visualization and data storytelling best practices. Participants will learn how to select the right chart type and how to tell a story with data. We’ll use RAWGraphs (an open-source data visualization tool) to create graphs and Figma (a design tool) to edit the graphs. Both tools are free to use and a great alternative to Excel when the goal is to create data visualizations that go beyond a bar chart or a line graph. No prior experience using RAWGraphs or Figma is required. The webinar will be highly interactive, using a combination of presentations, discussions, hands-on exercises, polls, and even a fun data visualization competition!
The data set that we’ll be using to practice RAWGraphs and Figma will be provided by the Max Foundation, an international nonprofit organization. This data visualization and data storytelling webinar can be combined with the Data Analysis and Cleaning in Alteryx webinar. Both webinars will use a similar case study and the same data set.

Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understanding the process of selecting the right chart, while considering the data, audience, and objective.
  • Understanding the process of telling stories with data.
