MUSE November-December 2018

Dive into data with this dazzling edition of MUSE Magazine! Understand what makes a fact…well… factual, and how we learn from the information we are given, as MUSE Magazine breaks down the art of data visualization.

 

Every day, about 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created. That’s an intense amount of information to sort through. One way we can pull the facts together is through visualization. You may not even know when you’re exposed to data visualization, but chances are you’ve seen an infographic, a map, or a chart. Not only will you and your kids learn how facts are translated into images, and why that is often easier for our brains to understand—as well as how data can be manipulated—but you’ll also learn how to create your own data visualization projects. Additionally, follow scientists out to the field to see how they collect data about various types of wildlife.
