Data Can Be Beautiful: Crafting a Compelling Story with SAS Visual Analytics
Do your reports effectively communicate the message you intended? Are your reports aesthetically pleasing? An attractive report does not ensure the accurate delivery of a data story, nor does a logical data story guarantee visual appeal. This course provides guidance for report designers to facilitate the creation of compelling data stories with SAS Visual Analytics. The primary goal of a report is to enable readers to quickly and easily get answers to their questions. Achieving this goal is strongly influenced by the choice of visualizations for the data, the quantity and arrangement of the information that is included, and the use or misuse of color.

During the morning session tips will be provided on how to express quantitative data using the most appropriate graphs; instructs report designers about the meaning of colors. A thoughtfully designed report can educate the viewer without compromising visual appeal. After the lunch you will learn how to use the SAS Visual Analytics Designer to facilitate the creation of reports that are both informative and beautiful.
