Why do this course?
Have you got data in different forms that you want to compare directly? Do you want to show your data on a map to improve your research message?
This workshop is an introduction to data visualisation techniques using hands-on activities in Google Fusion Tables. The course is ideal for participants who work with large data sets and want to convey their research outcomes clearly and persuasively in a visual manner. By merging geospatial data and crime statistics to create a heat map, participants will gain skills in visualisation that they can apply to their research.
You’ll learn how to:
Import data into Google Fusion Tables
Merge multiple data sets in Fusion Tables
Create interactive heatmaps on a Google Map
- Vary the way the visualisation is presented in Fusion Tables
Google Fusion Tables is an experimental Google Drive app. A personal Gmail account is required to participate in this course. Institutional accounts, such as those at universities, will not work.
The Intersect approach to training
At Intersect, we work closely with our member universities to develop and deliver training that targets the day-to-day software and technology problems that researchers face. We deliver hands-on courses in a relaxed setting with knowledgeable, helpful trainers who are themselves researchers and who know how researchers work.
