Workshop: Visualizing Tasmeem: Data Visualization, Social Networking, Crowd Sourcing

This workshop focuses on the power of data visualization to reveal trends and to persuade and educate citizens. A particular focus will be on emerging tools that enable real-time collection of data and commentary from the man on the street via cell phones and the possibilities of leveraging social networking technologies. The workshop will also address the varieties of forms and technologies used to make the visual display of data intelligible and compelling.

We will use a combination of data sources derived from the Tasmeem conference itself: gathering real- time information from participants during the event; and exploring trends in the evolution of Tasmeem, from the first conference in 2002 to the present.

Location: Room 225, VCUQatar Building
