Visualizing Data: Tableau and Web Mapping
The Visualizing Data: Tableau & Web Mapping workshop will be in Davis Library Room 247 on Tuesday, January 31 from 6 to 8 pm with Lorin Bruckner, Data Visualization Librarian.
Using data in our work has become essential. Data can support our propositions with evidence. It can help track the progress and outcomes of our ventures, and allow us to cultivate partner relationships. Fortunately, collecting data is now easier than it has ever been. But, as data becomes more prolific, datasets become larger and more complex. How do we find meaningful patterns in our data? How can we communicate those patterns to others?
Basic data visualization was once only accessible to experts and programmers, but with the availability of recent software tools, the average person can now turn a spreadsheet into an informative map or interactive dashboard of charts and graphs. This workshop will introduce you to user friendly web mapping and analytic tools that can reveal important truths hidden within your data.
General computer skills are required, but you do not need specialized prior knowledge. Registration is required. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Meggie at meggiel[at]live[dot]unc[dot]edu.
