Are you currently involved in work that could be augmented by visualizing your data for analysis or to communicate your findings to the public? Would you like to further your skills or learn new ways to make charts, graphs, maps using the visualization program Tableau?
Being able to effectively communicate your data to an audience is a necessary part of any project, and is made easier through the use of visualization programs like Tableau. In this three-hour-long workshop, we will discuss the basic capabilities of Tableau as well as take a hands-on approach to using the program.
Please come to the workshop with a copy of Tableau downloaded on your laptop. You can register for a free one-year student license through this link: https://www.tableau.com/academic/students
Continental breakfast provided.
Emma Slayton joined the University Libraries as the CLIR Fellow for Data Visualization and Curation in November. Her postdoc project focuses on supporting data visualization techniques and best practices throughout the different departments around CMU. At the University Libraries, she plans to offer workshops and other content to promote the use of various data visualization methods, tools, and techniques. Emma will also be offering a series of open office hours where university faculty, staff, and students can book time to discuss data visualization.
Emma recently finished work on her PhD in archaeology at Leiden University in the Netherlands. As an archaeologist, Emma focused on using computer modeling to hypothesize the location of early canoe routes in the Caribbean. She also has experience working with GIS and other data visualization tools.
