Join us for Love Data Week at Falvey, which runs from Monday, Feb. 14 through Friday, Feb. 17, 2023.

First, Nicole Daly, Social Science Librarian, will present a virtual workshop titled “Falling in Love with Data” on Tuesday, Feb. 14 .  REGISTER HERE.

This beginner workshop will provide an overview of ICPSR, an online data archive available to social science researchers. Topics covered will include an overview of ICSPR’s data services; from a quick outline on navigating the website, to finding and using data sets for analysis. In this Valentine themed session, we will demonstrate how to search for a relevant dataset using ICPSR’s various search options, explore the tools available in ICSPR’s data records, and take a quick look at their new Analyze Online feature.

Next, Michele Gandy, GIS Laboratory Manager, Department of Geography and the Environment, will present a virtual workshop titled “Present Real-Time Analytics with ArcGIS Dashboards”  on Wednesday, Feb. 15.  REGISTER HERE.

A dashboard is a view of information and data that allows you to monitor events, make decisions, inform others, and see trends. ArcGIS Dashboards enables users to convey information by presenting location-based analytics using intuitive and interactive data visualizations on a single screen. Join Michele Gandy, GIS Lab Manager in the Department of Geography and the Environment to learn how to create these informative dashboards with your own data.

Finally, Erica Hayes, Digital Scholarship Librarian, will present a virtual workshop from 12–1 p.m. titled “Introduction to Data Visualization” on Thursday, Feb. 16 . REGISTER HERE.

In this introductory workshop to data visualization, participants will gain an understanding of the process for making good visualizations. Data visualization is a vital part of data analysis as we conduct our research, but accurate and readable charts are also important for conveying information to our colleagues, students, or other audiences. In this introductory workshop, participants will review best practices, online resources, and core design concepts for creating basic data visualizations. Participants will learn about various tools for choosing chart types whether you’re trying to visualize a relationship, comparison, hierarchy, or process.

These ACS-approved events will take place from 12-1 p.m. and are a part of the Spring 2023 Falvey Forum Series.
