Rfun - Visualization in R using ggplot2

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2019-01-25 19:00
Bostock 023 Training Room
West Campus

Data science skills are increasingly important for research and industry projects.  With complex data science projects, however, come complex needs for understanding and communicating analysis processes and results.  Ultimately, an analyst's data science toolbox is incomplete without visualization skills.  Incorporating effective visualizations directly into the analysis tool you are using can facilitate quick data exploration, streamline your research process, and improve the reproducibility of your research.

In this workshop we will focus on ggplot2, a library for R that creates clear and well-designed visualizations and that plays well with other tidyverse packages. While prior experience with ggplot2 and with other tidyverse packages is not required, some basic familiarity with R is expected.  Please consider attending (or viewing a recording of) our Introduction to R workshop before attending this workshop on ggplot2.

In this workshop, we will use RStudio and RMarkdown files for all exercises. You may use the in-room computers, but if you prefer to bring your own laptop, but please make sure you come with RStudio and the tidyverse package installed.  You may also want to install the knitr package to be able to compile the entire Rmarkdown file. Workshop materials are available if you would like to review them in advance.

Please note: this classroom has a limited number of seats. If you choose to register for the workshop, please make every effort to attend, or if you cannot, please cancel your registration as soon as a conflict comes up. If all spots fill up, we will maintain a waitlist in the event of cancelations.  In addition, a previous version of this workshop has been recorded, and the associated files are available on GitHub. If you can't attend but would like to be notified when a recording is available, please contact Angela Zoss.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience  participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.

VFF: Seeing cluster constellations in data point clouds

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Fri, 2019-01-25 17:00
LSRC D106
Exploratory discrimination and classification is often the first task in data analysis, leading to new probes and discoveries. We present unsupervised cluster results, by our new classification algorithm named sparse dual of the density peaks (SD-DP), on several data sets, including benchmark data for testing and real-world data for exploratory investigation. The real-world data include color images, cells via gene expressions, English words in vector representation, and scientific articles. The latter data are collected over the Internet with KIWI, a tool we developed for theme-specific bibliographic search and survey for novice and expert researchers. We also introduce a couple of perspective ways for visual understanding, interpretation, and appreciation of cluster configurations.

DVS Workshop: Intro to ArcGIS Pro

Bostock Library 023
(Library Classroom)
ArcGIS Pro is a newly designed interface as an alternative to the tried-and-true ArcGIS desktop software. It has essentially the same functions, but with more of a MS-Office feel. As a native 64-bit program, it also has superior performance. There are a few nice feature enhancements such as multiple layouts in a single project. It's more fully integrated with ArcGIS Online (see schedule for upcoming workshop on Web Mapping). ...

There are a few nice feature enhancements such as multiple layouts in a single project.  It's more fully integrated with ArcGIS Online (see schedule for upcoming workshop on Web Mapping).

ArcGIS Pro can help you analyze or visualize digital data that has a locational component, as well as discuss starting points for obtaining data. Examples will focus on social science data, but attendees are encouraged to ask questions regarding their own needs and will be welcome to make one-on-one appointments later for more focused instruction. This is an introductory class, and it's not necessary to be familiar with ArcGIS Desktop beforehand.

DVS Workshop: Data Management 101 for Social Scientists

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - 2 hours 53 min ago
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
First Floor
Social scientists work with lots of data in their research, be it qualitative or quantitative, primary or secondary. This workshop will introduce data management practices for social scientists to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a social sciences lens using discipline-based, concrete examples. While good general data management practices are relevant across disciplines, participants working specifically within the social sciences are the intended audience for this workshop.
