Data Visualization

led by Camden Burd and Blair Tinker

Workshop Slides

This workshop will introduce participants to an overview of data visualization tools. After a brief discussion about ways to gather, preserve, and clean data, participants will work with RAWGraphs—an open-access framework for manipulating and visualizing data. The workshop will also examine the use of spatial visualizations with ArcGIS Online. Participants of the workshop will be better informed on different tools for data visualization and its applications for research and learning.

The following data set will be used during the workshop. Please download and save to your computer so that you can follow along.
