Ready for fun? Here is a list of ideas for how to visualize your data to engage your audience. All you need to get started is an adventurous spirit and the data you can find using our tabular data tool.
- Make your own custom charts, graphs or maps using data found on IECAM. IECAM can help you create these maps and charts, or you can try your hand with creating them yourself using online tools such as Datawrapper or Google’s Data Studio. The only thing these programs require are the spreadsheets you can download from IECAM and a desire to paint your community’s data picture!
- Make a trivia quiz to educate stakeholders in a fun, interactive way. You can get your area’s data from IECAM and then use free templates from websites like SurveyMonkey.
- Tell a data story to engage stakeholders and build understanding of your organization’s data needs and uses. Get started by using this Data Story Activity Guide from ECDataWorks.
- Make a game like this Jeopardy game created on the Jeopardy lab website. Games can help engage audiences and serve as excellent ice breakers for staff meetings or retreats. IECAM recommends you divide into teams for this one!
