Who We Are

Co-founders Joshua and Cathryn McLauchlan launched Vizall with a goal to make data analysis and visualisation fast, accurate and simple for journalists.

They began working on this idea in late 2018, successfully trialing interactive area maps in coronavirus, welfare and lotto news story in early 2020.

Cathryn and Josh moved their attention to building Vizall’s data analysis toolkit, ready to assist anyone working with a spreadsheet to sift confidently through data to find and tell compelling stories.
