DVG – Data Visualization Group

Data Visualization Group (i.e., DVG) is a place for students, faculty, and staff who are interested in sharing topics, theories, methods, and techniques related to data visualization. Data visualization is a graphical representation of data. Done well, visual elements such as charts, graphs, and maps are just a few data visualization tools that can provide viewers an accessible way of understanding the represented information. In a world increasingly governed by Big Data, data visualization can assist decision-makers in their analyses.
In this working group, members are encouraged to discuss and share theories, methods, and projects that include but are not limited to data preprocessing, data explanation, data exploration, theories of data visualization, real-world examples, and ongoing work. We will explore the fundamentals of data visualization including design principles, best practices, dashboards, visualization tools, ethics, and more.
This is a new working group, and topics will be based on participation and interest. Virtual meetings are free, open to all GC Community members of all skill levels, disciplines, and backgrounds.


Geoprocessing Tools in QGIS Workshoo – Feb 10th 5-6pm

  • Hi everyone,

    Next Friday, Feb 10 5-6pm, we will be having our second workshop of the Spring semester, also a mapping workshop. We will go over a few geoprocessing tools in QGIS. Here is a brief description of the workshop and link to register:

    Title: Setting your spatial stage: geoprocessing tools with QGIS

    Description: This workshop is intended to build up on an initial knowledge on the software QGIS. We will cover how to perform operations with vector and raster files within the QGIS environment. Operations with vector will consist of clipping, masking, intersecting, merging and buffering points, lines and polygons, in order to extract additional information from the spatial data one has in hands. Operations with raster will include steps to extract numerical data from raster, and to perform mathematical operations amonger rasters, creating new spatial objects as a result. These skills are valuable for statistical analyses of spatial data, and can be used to answer specific questions in both social and natural sciences. This workshop will assume basic knowledge of the interface in the software QGIS (i.e., how to load and visualize vector and raster data in this software).
