Data Day 2020 - IGNITE - Designing a homicide and non-fatal shooting dashboard to emphasize context
Dashboards are an interesting and convenient way to visualize many data fields related to a particular set of events but developing them is not a mindless task. As with other data-driven projects, there are ways that presentation or calculations with the data can exacerbate misconceptions or highlight the wrong take-away. Andrew Yaspan from the Medical College of Wisconsin explains why they are using a dashboard to look at the circumstances around homicides and non-fatal shootings in Milwaukee, and how the design of the dashboard is intended to invite exploration in context.
