Report on migration and mobility data visualization workshop


Lautenschütz, Anna-Katharina; Thieme, Susan (2012). Report on migration and mobility data visualization workshop. Einsiedeln: NCCR North-South ; University of Zurich.

Abstract

Migration and development has become a topic of high interest especially in countries of the global South. With increasing interest, academia as well as policy makers identify the lack of high quality migration data as one major obstacle for forming policies and maximizing the benefits of migration. Next to data availability, a major challenge is to effectively represent, analyse and visualize large and highly dynamic datasets. The overall goal of the workshop was to support new insights into patterns of migration and interlinkages with development by screening and evaluating existing data of researchers within and outside the NCCR North-South and creating effective visual support to explore datasets and create knowledge that cannot be established by looking at raw data.
