Los Angeles Times Photo Archive—Visualized!
November 3, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
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.
