Library Workshop – Visualize: Los Angeles Times Photo Archive withTableau
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.
