Data 101: Charting


Pie charts, bar charts, line charts – these common types of charts are everywhere, but there are so many ways to configure and customize them that it can be difficult to know how to get started, or how to choose the best chart to help tell your story. In this workshop, we will explore the types of charts available, describe the differences between them, when each is appropriate, and how you can create simple and readable charts that draw attention to the point you are trying to make.

No computers will be used in this class, and there are no prerequisites.


The Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center and Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh are partnering on a “Data 101” training series designed to build information literacy, mapping, and data visualization skills for people looking to get started in using data, or more experienced users looking to brush up on their skills.
