Leveraging Space Resources Through Data Analytics and Visualization
November 7, 2017 | Catholic University of America | Washington, DC
Now more than ever, there is pressure to maximize space resources across an institution. Regardless of whether your institution is public, private, large, or small, the message is the same. Often, the internal campus narrative is that there is not a need for more space but rather, “We need to use what we have more efficiently.” While this is often true, it does not tell the entire story. Quality, structural limitations, space management practices (or lack thereof), and, yes, space quantity are all factors in your institution’s space equation. The ability to effectively communicate these complexities to the executive management team is vital to the wellbeing of the institution.
Define data visualization and describe its importance to your organization.
Identify the data and people needed to develop your institution’s space story.
Recognize other studies, trends, and qualitative factors that may impact the need for space.
Translate analyses and space into effective visualizations that captures the attention of your executive management team.
