About
the
Curator
Cards
What?
The Curator Cards present a set of principles that
support the visualisation of data for participatory
science storytelling.
The Curator Cards can help decide which (aspects
of a) dataset are relevant to provide evidence for
a scientific story and which formats to choose to
communicate to which audience.
For whom?
The cards can be used by anyone who wants to
present data as part of science communication.
It helps them to make the data easier to understand
for people engaging with the story.
Why?
The data Curator Cards are intended to convey
data to a general audience so that the experience
is engaging, easy, and fun.

Why
Data
Curation?
The term curation finds its origin in museum practice. The various curation
roles in a museum relate to two types of practices.
Just like the museum objects, data can also be collected, archived,
preserved, interpreted and presented through stories.

Why
Data
Curation?
Data curation principles
Visualise data
as simply
as possible.
Engage people
with data they didn’t
collect and encourage
them to collect
their own data
and add to it.
Curate the data in
a way that is as relevant
to the audience
as possible.
Provide support
for how to ask good
questions from data.
Use storytelling
to frame
the experiences
with the data.
Combine creative
with practical
activities.
Start with a small
part rather than
the whole data set.
Provide examples
and prompt ways
to expand upon
own interest.
Based on the literature we identified these data curation principles:

Curation?
The Curator Cards
The data Curator Cards are intended to convey data to a general
audience so that the experience is engaging, easy, and fun.
The approaches are:
Make a comic strip
about the dataset.
Build a
chronological
timeline out
of a dataset.
Start with one core
‘clue’ piece of data
and curate data
around it.
Conduct a mini
experiment by
collecting and
analyzing data.
Make a news article
out of datasets,
possibly as a
‘reporter from
the future’.
Have a Q&A with
an ‘expert’ and
invite audience
questions.

DESCRIPTION
Start from a representative
snapshots of a small part of the
data set and expand out, rather
than starting with the full, large
data set and focusing it in.
BENEFITS
It will be easier for the data
explorer to make the connection
between the data and the prob-
lem context point they can orient
within the data before navigat-
ing across its e.g. through time
and/or space and or some other
dimension of the data.

Stp
by
step
Step by step
Reflect on or discuss in
small groups the data
story that is being
presented – consider
the intended audience
and media through
which the story will
be communicated.
Pick a Curator Card
and brainstorm how
that method can be
applied to the data
story and evaluate
to what extent it is
suitable.
Repeat for
each card.
Brainstorm alternative
approaches that
do not appear on
the Curator Cards.
