Data Visualizations - Drawing Actionable Insights from Data

  • 02/04/2016



  • Description:
    Professor Katy Börner from Indiana University is the curator of the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit hosted at the CDC David J. Sencer Museum from January 25 – June 17, 2016 ( The exhibit demonstrates the power of maps to address vital questions about the contours and content of human knowledge. Professor Börner delivers this inaugural lecture for the CDC exhibit opening. She contends in an age of information overload, the ability to make sense of vast amounts of data and to render insightful visualizations is as important as the ability to read and write. The power of visualizations not only to help locate us in physical space but also to help us understand the extent and structure of our collective knowledge, to identify bursts of activity, pathways of ideas, and borders that beg to be crossed. The talk introduces a theoretical visualization framework meant to empower anyone to systematically render data into insights together with tools that support temporal, geospatial, topical, and network analyses and visualizations. Key concepts are illustrated to inspire viewers to visualize their very own data.
