New York Times reporter and graphics editor Nadja Popovich discusses the ways that visualizations of global climate change can be personalized either through localizing data around a reader’s home town or by creating visualizations that use human time scales and measurements. By inviting the audience to engage and customize climate data through online media, the visualization designers can humanize the data and create a deeper understanding of how global phenomena will impact readers personally.
This talk was part of the Visualization for Informal Science Education conference held at the Exploratorium, which explored themes of interpretation, narration, broadening participation, applying research to practice, collaboration, and the affordances of technology.
