Abstract

As data visualizations are becoming more prevalent, the ability to read and write with data is increasing in importance. However, it is unclear how the visualization of uncurated and real-time data sets can lead to successful meaning-making. This qualitative study analyzed video data of visitors engaging with a data visualization exhibition with uncurated, real-time data at a midwestern science museums and showed personalization, shared sense-making, and physical data entry as emergent visitor strategies to support meaningful engagement with data visualization. This has implications supporting civic engagement with data visualization.
