WHAT IS ...
CollViz is short for Collections Visualization. We've created free data visualization tools just for museum collections and their everyday tasks. This website is where you can find all the dashboards we offer, their tutorials, and many more resources to help you begin bringing data viz into your collection today.
Data visualization (data viz) is the process of visually representing data by encoding it into graphic elements using color, size, shape, etc. It's an intuitive way to explore and share a dataset, revealing insights that would have been hidden otherwise. Believe it or not, you've already done data viz yourself . . .
pie charts, bar graphs, and scatter plots all count!
A dashboard is a data viz tool that has multiple charts in one display, showing one dataset from multiple angles. It's like your car's dashboard, showing different data about your car in one glance. It's also interactive and allows you to explore insights about the nature of the dataset in an intuitive way. Dashboards can be designed for a variety of specific objectives and audiences.
