Mapping our Oceans: The Role of Science and Technology in Sustaining Ocean Ecosystems

Despite covering 70% of the planet's surface, we are only beginning to understand the seascapes, species, and processes of the world's changing oceans. We are at a critical juncture where 'planet ocean' is now entering the Anthropocene. To close this gap, new geospatial technologies are playing a crucial role in addressing many ocean challenges, including marine ecology, resource management, and ocean conservation.

CDVS Workshop: Geospatial Data in R: Mapping (Canceled)

THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8. This workshop introduces the use of the R language for producing maps. We will demonstrate the advantages of a code-drive approach such as R for visualizing geospatial data. Participants will gain the skills to quickly and efficiently create a variety of map types for a website, presentation, or publication. In addition to working on hands-on coding exercises, we will also review practical guidance on designing effective maps.

CDVS Workshop: Slides with Rmarkdown: Xaringan

Part of the DataFest Workshop Series. R markdown is a means of applying structure to the prose in your coding document. Using R Markdown and the xaringan package, attendees will integrate code with natural language (i.e. prose) to render presentation slides as a reproducible report. The method of integrating code with prose is known as literate coding. Attendees will focus their energies on rendering slides as one type of report while being introduced to an array of report types that can be generated from the same code.

CDVS Workshop: Presenting Data Science Results to Stakeholders

Part of the DataFest Workshop Series. This presentation will focus on strategies for developing a short presentation that summarizes a data science project, including: identifying a compelling story in the analysis; leading with the key takeaways; and presenting results simply, effectively, and visually. Communicating with stakeholders is a core process in any data science project. Attendees will learn to construct a visually effective and time-efficient presentation for sharing data science results with your stakeholders to maximize the time you have with them.
