Free (and fabulous) software online
Feeling poor? There is myriad free software available online for generating visualizations for all sorts of data types: GIS maps, graphs, flow charts, timelines, slideshows, animations, collages and more. Also, there is open-source software that will help you do layout, design, draw, manipulate photos, edit movies and more. In this session Karl will give you a general overview of the capabilities of each (he has at least four GIS sites alone!), and when he’s through, you and the other attendees are welcome to share any free software you like to use.

Telling compelling stories with data
We live in a data-driven world, where effective graphics are key to the delivery of information. When a graphical piece of information is done right, you can’t tell that there is design behind it – information flows to the viewer clearly and efficiently.
Graphics without words
Imagine creating a graphic so incredible, no words or labels were needed to explain it; imagery so revealing and telling, that it left you speechless. If any creative staff has come close to achieving this, National Geographic has that staff. This session will show you how National Geographic researchs and re-creates actual models of living creatures from millions of years ago, as well as historical paintings and reconstructions with enormous amounts of information embedded in them. It’s whole different type of informational graphic. A must-see!
I interact, therefore I am
Our interactions with the physical world help us gain experience, learn and think. In fact, physical interaction is tied up with many of our cognitive tasks. Thus it’s important to consider what qualities will make your interactive graphics successful. In this session, we’ll discuss how to give your audience an enjoyable and meaningful user experience through effective interactive design. We’ll look at the importance of mental models, how to design an ideal user interface, and strategies for understanding your audience’s goals.
