Creating Inclusive Data Visualizations
Accessibility should be part of any digital project or data visualization from the get-go: it's a must-have, not a nice-to-have. It's not just a matter of meeting the standards, though, or ensuring that you have good color contrast: you want to think about your labels, your language, and your project's interactivity too. In this short presentation, learn about how to plan your project so that your visualizations go beyond being accessible ("well, the data is all there") to being inclusive: understandable, useful, and usable by humans of all circumstances and abilities.
This workshop is part of the (Open) Data Jam hosted by the Libraries' Research Data and Digital Scholarship unit. Participants will be emailed a Zoom link the day before the workshop.
