In this talk you will explore how large and complex data-sets can be visualised in compelling and informative ways.

This talk will share a range of examples that covers everything from commuter flows to baboons, cyclists to songbirds in order to demonstrate how maps and data visualisations offer a window into big data. Many of the selected examples started out life in R, you will get the chance to see how R is not just great for data wrangling but for visualisation as well.
