Medialab coders talk about the challenges of data acquisition and analysis
Successful data analysis in cultural projects would not be possible without the work of a team of coders who work hand in hand with designers and researchers to create the best tools and methods of working with data. We asked our experts – Dawid Górny and Marcin Chojnacki – to talk about their daily work and the challenges they face during each stage of the project.

How to transform data sets into tools for exploring cultural phenomena?
Explorative data analysis is at the heart of any data-driven research process. Having spent several months collecting data from various sources: social media, web sites, and our own surveys, we were able to perform prototype analyses and visualisations in order to test the quality of the collected data and its usefulness at a later stage of work. Being half-way into our study, we are anxious to see how the work done so far will help us explore the issues we are interested in.

Studio NAND: There is nothing worse than a visualisation that tries to convey too much information at once
On January 9–10, Medialab once again had the pleasure of hosting Steffen Fiedler and Stephan Thiel of Berlin’s design studio NAND, who gave an open lecture, and conducted a two-day workshop for representatives of institutions working jointly on the Shared Cities project. In an interview given to Medialab, the data visualisation experts talked about their work, best visualisation practices and the future of the industry.
