Let me tell you a story about sharks and how my eyes were opened to the fact that 11,000 of them are killed per hour. That's right: 11,000. Sure, sharks can be scary … but they play a vital role in the food chain, in the underwater ecosystem.
SAS partner Zencos shared that stat with me one day after we dished on blogging ins and outs over lunch. You see, Zencos works with nonprofit organization OCEARCH to visually tell stories using data from tagged sharks. Wha?!?
You must tune into a webinar on July 24 (naturally, that's just before Shark Week) that will go into much more detail about this captivating story. This work raises awareness of shark activity to save human – and shark – lives. But how does it relate to data visualization? Zencos and OCEARCH will explain how to tell a compelling data story when the main character is widely thought of as a villain, all in SAS Visual Analytics.
Check out the line-up of experts for the webinar, especially "Katharine" who has a large fin and fan base on Twitter. I even get to be a part of the fun, moderating the conversation and learning even more Jaws-dropping facts to show off with my friends.
