Seeing Data describes itself as "a group of research projects which aim to understand the place of data visualisations in society." By navigating via the menu on the left, both academic and general audiences will find resources to further their understanding of this topic. Those interested in how the public responds to and engages with data visualizations should check out Original Seeing Data Research, which addresses how the Seeing Data project conducted its initial research into these questions and includes a lengthy list of journal publications, blog posts, and other outputs from this research. The three current doctoral research projects that followed Seeing Data's opening project are summarized in the section entitled Relating to Data Through Visualisation. General audiences may like to start with Developing Visualisation Literacy, which "aims to help people make sense of data visualisations." Here, readers will find seven readily digestible mini-modules that give a basic overview of how to understand visualizations the public may encounter in news reports or online. Institutions and organizations associated with Seeing Data include the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds, and York in the UK, and the University of Agder in Norway.
