Open Data and Tableau - 10/29/20

Thursday, Oct 29, 2020 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

You can do this! 

Tableau makes data visualization software free for registered students and a great way to explore and share your data as you work through your analysis or interpretation. Explore interactive features, create maps, charts, and graphs. You will learn how to tap into open data repositories as a way to refine your research questions.  Joy Guey (Social Sciences Center for Education, Research, and Technology) and Zoe Borovsky (UCLA Library) will show you how to layer maps utilizing open-source data from IPUMs and Los Angeles County.   

Registered participants will be sent instructions on downloading and installing Tableau Desktop software one week before the workshop.  (Requesting the free software requires a current student ID.) 

This workshop will be offered via Zoom. If you're registered, you'll receive the Zoom invitation information the day before the workshop.
