This introductory session on data crunching and visualization is a must for any reporter who wants to take that huge mound of data and quickly and easily analyze it to produce charts and tables. You can break down data into understandable fields, link your data to maps for color-coded display, and share your work with others. This is a hands-on session and we will walk you though the entire process from data collecting to creating the visuals. You don’t need to be a spreadsheet wizard or data analyst to attend.
Note: All those attending must have a laptop (Mac or PC) with updated software and the latest version of Google Fusion Tables onto their laptops prior to the session.
Your own Mac or PC laptop with Google Fusion Tables installed. $30; pre-registration.
