PARIS21 brought together NISR’s data visualization team, journalists from the Rwandan media and professional graphic designers in Rwanda to participate in the workshop on “data visualization and infographics” in the Musanze district in the Northern Province of Rwanda. The workshop, held from 6-10 March 2017, primarily aimed at instilling among the journalists the importance of greater use of data visualization in reporting data driven stories and promoting statistical literacy. The workshop covered the fundamental aspects of (i) data storytelling; (ii) graphic design; (iii) statistical concepts; and (iv) data analytics.
