Data Visualization is a transversal discipline which harnesses the immense power of visual communication in order to explain, in an understandable manner, the relationships of meaning, cause and dependency which can be found among the great abstract masses of information generated by scientific and social processes.

The Visualizar project, directed by José Luis de Vicente, is conceived as an open and participatory research project around theory, tools and strategies of information visualization.

Visualizar has the support of Bestiario, whose members have collaborated actively in every edition up to date.

Learning data skills to open reality

A one-day Data Journalism Conference with some workshops, talks, panels and a lot of fun.

To have data from governments and corporations does not necessarily mean to have a more informed and fair society. People need to be able to extract meaning from open data. And this is only possible if the actors who are at the forefront of the public debate, such as journalists, researchers, social organizations and concerned citizens, have the appropriate knowledge to deal with the data available. This one day conference provides debates on the impact of open data in the journalism field and hands-on workshops on data literacy skills.
