So you’ve finally assembled or gotten your hands on a dataset or spreadsheet. Nice work! Not sure what to do next? This hour-long workshop will provide strategies for efficiently turning semi-structured data into tidy data before introducing participants to a range of simple but powerful analyses using the R programming language. No coding experience required. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring their own datasets to work with, and all are welcome to stay afterwards for an open office hour to discuss any further or more specific questions. Please use this form to RSVP.Read More →

Intro to Mapping 10:00 am
Intro to Mapping @ Room 413, Alexander Library
Oct 11 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Intro to Mapping @ Room 413, Alexander Library
What kind of information should be mapped? Which tool is best for the job? If you’ve ever found yourself asking either of these questions – or any other about getting started with mapping – this workshop is for you. We’ll begin with a primer how to identify what kind of data is best suited by a map and what data is necessary to make a map. Then, we’ll explain how to get started with a few common mapping programs (StoryMap JS, Palladio, Tableau, Carto) and evaluate what kinds of uses each is best suited to. Please use this form to RSVP.  Read More →
