Telling Visual Stories with Data

Want to know how to produce compelling, code-based data visualizations like ones you’ve seen in the New York Times and FiveThirtyEight? In this two-day workshop, Montana Free Press data reporter Eric Dietrich will guide you through the workflow he uses to clean, visualize and annotate data to produce graphics using Google Sheets, the code-based visualization tool Vega and Adobe Illustrator. You’ll also be introduced to the Jupyter Lab environment for working with data using open source Python tools, and discuss how to combine data visualizations with narrative reporting and storytelling. This workshop meets January 28 & 29 from 9am – 5pm.
