Whether you work in hydrology, geology, construction or environmental engineering, interpreting data and telling a story with the results is a critical part of your work. It can be a rewarding process, but it is not without its challenges. Chief among them is the variety and diversity of your potential audience and the need to convey your data in a way that will be valuable and easily absorbed.
Your audience may consist of clients, colleagues, investors, students, grant boards or contract authorities, to name a few, and each group has varying needs and requirements as well as degree of understanding of your industry. While the task of representing your data for such varied situations may seem daunting, it can be accomplished deftly with the right software.
