This video tutorial shows how to get started with AccessEngineering’s DataVis—the interactive data visualization tool that transforms the way engineers visually explore and engineering students learn about material properties. The carefully curated dataset of 200 materials and 65 properties—including cost—provides users with enough data to understand fundamental material properties without overwhelming them.DataVisallows users to compare the range of each property within material classifications as well as across classifications. Engineers and students often struggle to apply formulas without fully understanding the concepts behind them, or why certain material properties have the values they do.DataVisbridges this gap by presenting materials property data in dynamic visualizations that enable students, faculty, and engineers to tell a story with the data.
