The Data Revolution

This year’s theme for the Visitor Studies Conference–playing on the historic revolutions that took place in Boston, where this year’s conference was held–was “The Data Revolution.”  There were an impressive number of presentations and workshops that focused on data and a variety of approaches to data analysis.  As always, I’m happy to share out my conference notes, as well as link to my presentation (along with co-presenters Claire Quimby and Elee Wood) “How to Keep from Drowning in Data.”  Lastly, I hosted a dining discussion on the topic of “Cool New Tools, Tips, and Tricks for Evaluation.”

Below (an example from my notes): a scattergram that plots several data points from different exhibits based on Sweep Rate Index (SRI) and the Percentage of Diligent Visitors (%DV)
