Whether you work in business, public service, science, or engineering, I can help you turn your data into insights. The main purpose of data visualization is to turn cognitive tasks humans are bad at, namely making sense of large sets of geographic, numeric, or textual data, into cognitive tasks humans are good at, namely recognizing patterns visually. This can be for analytical purposes and/or for communicating your results to colleagues and customers. Beyond mere functionality, it is worthwhile to make data visualizations look beautiful, as this motivates people to spend more time understanding complex information. For these purposes I offer you a wide range of data and information visualization services.
I mainly work with open source tools, namely QGIS, Python, R, Gimp, Inkscape, Scribus, Grafana, LibreOffice, and free of charge tools such as Power BI and Qlik Sense. For you as my client this has several advantages. Because overhead costs are kept low, you can thus book my services for economical prices. Also, because you can yourself download the software, I can provide you, if desired, not just the finished results but also how-to-instructions, editable formats, resuable templates, and runnable scripts. I‘m always open to working with new tools and with licensed tools (namely ArcGIS, Tableau, AnyLogic) upon request.
I offer my services for an hourly rate of 35,00 € plus 7 or 19 % value added tax (VAT). The reduced VAT of 7 % applies to the production of graphic design products. I am gladly bookable also for small tasks of 1–2 h. I work remotely collaborating with you via e-mail, telephone, and Skype. We can communicate in English, German, or French.
