August Event: Visualizing Data for People -- A Human Factors Perspective

Join UXPA-MN on August 14th for "Visualizing Data for People: A Human Factor Perspective" with Paul Derby and Mike Crites. 

There are a variety of helpful resources for designers (e.g., books, blogs) that describe best practices for data visualization. While these resources often provide useful recommendations, they sometimes fail to offer explanations about how these visual representations support human cognition and perception. For example, why should we provide time-series trends, limit the use of color, and strive for visual interpretations of values? What is it about human attention, memory, and situation awareness that make some data visualization techniques more effective than others? This presentation will give an overview of some best practices of data visualization and will provide a discussion of why they benefit human perception and performance.
