Tidying Data with Python and OpenRefine

1:00pm to 3:30pm

Location: 

Cambridge

 

In his paper "Tidy Data," Hadley Wickham riffs on Tolstoy: "Like families, tidy datasets are all alike but every messy dataset is messy in its own way." When we spend 75% of our "analysis" time cleaning and preprocessing data, it makes sense to focus on strategies to standardize our data. In this workshop, we will focus on correcting common errors in collected data and (re)structuring datasets to facilitate analysis... Read more about Tidying Data with Python and OpenRefine

Visual Eloquence: A Participatory Workshop on Creating Effective Data Visualizations

10:00am to 12:00pm

Location: 

Online: Zoom

Are you interested in using data visualizations to explore your data or as part of your research output, but unsure of where to start? Are you already using data viz, but want to learn to create more effective presentations with different applications or programming languages?

Consider attending Visual Eloquence, a participatory workshop on visualizing data and understanding the powerful role it plays in analysis and presentation for digital scholarship. You will learn some fundamentals principles for presenting data and work with others to put them into action. The workshop will feature brief presentations, a collaborative small-group exercise working with a dataset and visualization tools to create a visual presentation, and a discussion.

No programming or data science expertise is necessary.

Registration is free but required as space is limited.
