I’ve posted the slides from the presentation on data visualization that I gave with Jared Moore and Luis Zaman at the 2013 BEACON Congress. Check them out on figshare and feel free to share. Even though we were only able to scratch the surface, we had some great discussions about how to create and share visualizations and how important it is to make your data “easily consumable” by your audience.

For modern scientific data, a picture can be worth billions of words. In this session, we'll discuss some of the tools and techniques used to produce informative and effective visualizations. This includes tools for producing videos, which can be tremendously insightful for visualizing data over time and space. Finally, we'll discuss some of the technologies that allow data producers and consumers to manipulate and interact with data sets in ways that allow data to be viewed from new and different perspectives.
