This is a group for individuals interested in data visualisation, where members can skill-share, discuss data visualisation topics and highlight great examples. The current format is an (almost) monthly meeting, either a scheduled speaker or a more informal discussion session. “Data visualisation” in this group is focused on representing large scale data in interesting and innovative ways: i.e. more than just a graph!

Anyone can join the group. If you would be willing to lead one or more sessions please let us know (but you are also more than welcome to attend if you don’t wish to lead a session).

If you are interested in joining, sign up to the mailing list at www.jiscmail.ac.uk/BRISTOL-DATAVIZINTERESTGROUP. The group is also on Yammer at the University of Bristol (DataViz Working Group).


Current organisers

Harriet Mills, Oliver Davis, Natalie Thurlby and Polly Eccleston are currently planning the 2019 sessions, please get in touch if you have any ideas for sessions or topics you would like to see covered via grp-viz-org@groups.bristol.ac.uk.


Past organisers

Oli Chalkey (who founded this Data Visualisation working group with Harriet Mills and Bobby Stuijfzand) is taking a break from organising the group while he completes his Phd in ‘computational methods for the rational design of organisms through massive in-silico experiments.’ at the Bristol Centre for Complexity Sciences, his GitHub is OliCUoB.

Bobby Stuijfzand now lives and works in Lausanne, Switzerland but is still an honorary University of Bristol Data Scientist.
