DATA Play 7
Data visualisation

Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University

Friday 18 August 2017
10am to 5pm
Saturday 19 August 2017
10am to 4pm

DATA Play 7 was a great success with some really interesting discussions around data visualisation. The day was supported and sponsored by the Balance-Unbalance Conference which explores the intersections between art, nature, science, technology and society. The conference really fitted into the DATA Play vibe and it’s great to see the DATA Play continue to grow with more people and projects linking up.

The day included talks from:

  • Mike Phillips: Balance Unbalance
  • Luke Christison: Immersive environmental representations
  • Simon Lock: Collecting and visualising greenspace usage data
  • Simon Lock: ‘Buoy Oh Buoy’ playing with visual representations of marine data
  • Mike Phillips: North Devon Biosphere data collection presentation

DATA Play 7 challenges

Monitoring and visualising data for Plymouth Plan

The Plymouth Plan is the long term plan for the city.

Visualising data to support corporate activity

Plymouth City Council has significant cost savings to make over the coming years.

  • How can we use data to help explore how we make efficiencies, improve our relationship with our communities or generate income?

The Corporate Plan outlines the strategic direction of the Council for the next three years.

Visualising data for fun

  • How can we use data in fun and interesting ways that engages local people or helps to understand the city in different, alternative or surprising ways?

Visualising data for good

  • How can we present data to put across environmental and impassioned messages in such a way that people gain an understanding and appreciation of the issues?
