Elaine Giles


With visualization being the hot topic that it is, we had a sizeable audience for Elaine’s presentation. As usual she kept everyone enthralled throughout with several different examples of how to present data visually, pointing out the benefits and also the disadvantages of trying to present and describe technical information as text and numbers.

Below are a couple of examples of the diagrams that she created as part of the presentation, both relating to the recent redesign of the NWAG website.
