Data Visualisation with Google Fusion Tables (Melbourne Campus)
Thursday, 6 April 2017 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm (AEST)
A DIGITAL RESEARCH INITIATIVE - A collaboration between the Office of the DVC(R), ICT and the Library, La Trobe’s Digital Research Strategy aims to provide a world-class digital research environment to enable and accelerate new research outcomes through the engagement of researchers with advanced and emerging information and computing technologies and appropriate support services.
ABOUT THIS SESSION:
The course is ideal for researchers who work with large data sets and want to convey their research outcomes clearly and persuasively in a visual manner. By creating a heat map by merging geospatial data and crime statistics, participants will gain skills in visualisation that they can apply to their research. This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.
You'll learn how to:
- Import data into Fusion Tables
- Merge multiple data sets in Fusion Tables
- Create heat maps using Fusion Tables
- Vary the visualisation used to illustrate your data in Fusion Tables.
Minimum requirements: basic usage of Microsoft Excel and of a web browser.
Google Fusion Tables is an experimental Google Drive app. A personal Gmail account is required to participate in this course. Institutional accounts will not work.
WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?
- 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?
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
- All researchers and research students.
