DVS Workshop: Designing Academic Figures and Posters

Events - All Combined (Huginn Feed) - Wed, 2017-02-22 18:30
Wed, Feb 22, 2017
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Bostock Library 023(Library Classroom)
Figures and other forms of visual representation can have a huge impact on the communication of research to a broader audience. A well designed figure can summarize research, captivate audience interest, and/or explain complicated phenomena and processes. Likewise, becoming familiar with good strategies for poster design allows researchers to take full advantage of the opportunity to network with colleagues and promote their own research. This workshop will cover basic considerations for designing effective academic figures and posters, including use of color, layout, fonts/typography, and software choices.

Want to learn how the statistical software environment R can be used for mapping? R has become a popular mapping option for those who want to easily switch between spatial and statistical analysis and reproduce/share the code easily. This workshop will demonstrate how to import and view shapefiles, run statistical analysis, and create a leaflet map which can be used online. Prerequisites: Intro to R: Data Transformations, Analysis, and Data Structures AND Introduction to ArcGIS. Please attend both of these workshops or watch the videos from previous workshops.

DVS Workshop: Visualizing Qualitative Data

So many of the tools that have been developed for data visualization focus on data that are in spreadsheet format, especially data that are number-heavy. For qualitative research, numerical data may not be the primary focus, or the numerical data may be difficult to visualize for other reasons. This workshop will explore some of the complications of trying to visualize qualitative data, walking through examples of different types of qualitative data projects and the visualizations that have been produced from those projects. Exercises will help attendees work through the process of developing visualizations for sample qualitative projects. The workshop will include recommendations for tools that may be useful, but we will focus more on the process of identifying possible visual elements within a qualitative data project than on a specific software application.

Tableau is specially-designed software for the easy design of interactive charts, maps, and dashboards. In this boot camp, we will start from the beginning with learning Tableau and work through several data sets that highlight different chart types, different data structures, and different challenges within Tableau. Note: Workshop participants must bring a Mac or PC laptop with Tableau installed. Students should consider registering for a free license to the full version of Tableau Desktop. Other participants can sign up for a free two-week trial of the full version of Tableau Desktop or install the free Tableau Public instead. Target audience: This workshop is especially designed for Tableau beginners. Existing Tableau users may prefer to register for one of our more advanced workshops, or they may wish to get a refresher on Tableau by watching our previously-recorded workshops. This boot camp will build on previous, shorter workshops and may involve some repetition for attendees or viewers of previous workshops.
