Worth a Thousand Words: Why Data Should be Visualized

Visualization can be a powerful tool to support data representation and analysis throughout project design and delivery.

In this session, you'll learn how to visualize data across multiple facets of building design—from energy model results to cost and project specification data. Through a technology demonstration, the presenters will show the contextual visualization of data in real-time, leading to actionable data earlier in the design process.

Join this session to discover how to integrate these data visualization techniques into your own design practice to win more work, increase inclusivity and communication between project stakeholders, and deliver better buildings.

Learning Objectives

  1. Recognize how data visualization is key to making data actionable.
  2. Learn techniques for integrating energy model results, cost information, and project specifications into a design model for contextual visualization.
  3. Discover how to use a design model to navigate and review project data in real time.
  4. Understand how to effectively communicate insights from performance data to expert and non-expert project stakeholders.
