Data Conversations - Delving into data visualisations

Date
13 February 2020 - 12:00-14:00
Location
Speaker
Library, University of Sheffield

Data Conversations are a chance for researchers and professional services staff to come together and discuss their research data and current issues in research data management. There will be presenters from across the University, as well as plenty of time to meet and chat with colleagues.

Our first ‘Data Conversation’, to celebrate Love Data Week, will focus on the benefits and challenges of data visualisation for researchers.

Data visualisations allow research to be more easily explored, evaluated and understood than by looking at the raw data alone. Visualisations can help communicate research to new audiences, highlight trends during the early, exploratory stages of a research project, and make sense of big datasets.

Speakers will include:

  • Alasdair Rae (Urban Studies and Planning)
  • Colin Angus (SCHARR)
  • Charlotte Tomkins (History), Charles West (History), and Tom Stafford (Psychology)

The Library, IT Services and the Research Software Engineering team have recently begun to develop new services to support data visualisation and there will be a chance for researchers to feed back on what services they would like to see in the future.

Register via Eventbrite workshop.
