BL Labs have kindly organised a session on ‘beautiful data’ for the afternoon of 21 March at the BL: 2 pm onwards. Data visualisation is one of the next ‘big things’ and the research councils have published a number of funding calls in this area. The session will round off the work we have done to explore data, publicise it and engage with the public.
The session will comprise
- An overview of ‘beautiful data’ and the tools you might use to create such things.
- A tour of the new Beautiful Science exhibition: http://www.bl.uk/whatson/exhibitions/beautiful-science/index.html
- A case-study on the ‘Mechanical Curator’ – a new tool to explore data
- A final case-study on ‘The Sample Generator’ – – a new tool to explore data
