Data visualisation: What’s it all about?

This short paper looks at what data visualisation is, how charities can get started using it, and provides handy tips and resources.

Charities are getting better at planning their evaluation, collecting and analysing data, both qualitative and quantitative.

But finding the best way to present this data can be tricky.

Choosing the right charts, graphs or infographics to communicate the story your data is telling can influence how well your audiences engages with your findings, and how much can be learnt from them.

Here we draw on advice and recommendations from NPC’s measurement seminar held on 14 June 2017 in London.

This paper will:

  • introduce you to different data visualisation options
  • explore the benefits
  • Look at how organisations have approached this.
