Library Workshop – Visualize: Los Angeles Times Photo Archive withTableau

February 15, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Visualize–Los Angeles Times Photo Archive and Tableau (sixty minutes)
Wednesday, February 15, 5–6 p.m. in Young Research Library, Research Commons Classroom
This workshop will give you hands-on experience working with primary sources from UCLA’s Digital Library collection — and turning them into a stunning, interactive presentation (timelines and maps!) using Tableau Public’s free software. You’ll learn the basics of a powerful, but intuitive visualization platform, in addition to working with free digital resources from the library collection. Finally, we’ll compare mapping interfaces in Tableau with CartoDB, a more powerful database designed for mapping projects. Two for one!

Taught by Zoe Borovsky, Ph.D. Librarian for Digital Research and Scholarship, and Andy Rutkowski, Geospatial Librarian.
