About This Kit

This activity is the result of a research collaboration between the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice and Tandon School of Engineering at New York University, and was funded with a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

The booklet was authored by John Emerson and Margaret Satterthwaite with help from contributors Brianne Cuffe, Sidra Mahfooz, and Deirdre Dlugoleski.

It was inspired by Shiqing He and Eytan Adar’s Vizit cards, The Data Visualisation Catalogue by Severino Ribecca, and Tamara Munzner’s Nested Model for Visualization Design and Validation.
