Workshop/Short Course

CDVS Workshop: R for data science: visualization, pivot, join, regression

R and the Tidyverse are a data-first coding language that enables reproducible workflows. In this two-part workshop, you'll learn the fundamentals of R, everything you need to know to quickly get started. You'll learn about visualization using ggplot2, how to make interactive charts for use in dashboards, how to reshape and merge data, and be introduced to models.

CDVS Workshop: Duke Research Data Repository Overview

This workshop will provide an overview of the Duke Research Data Repository and how it can help Duke researchers comply with funder and journal policies as well as meet growing standards around data stewardship and sharing, such as the FAIR Guiding Principles. The general functionalities of the platform as well as tips for submitting data will be discussed. New features will also be demonstrated including a new integration with the Globus platform to support transferring large-scale data.

CDVS Workshop: ArcGIS StoryMaps

This workshop will help you get started telling stories with maps on the ArcGIS StoryMaps platform. This easy-to-use web application combines interactive maps with narrative text, images, and videos to provide a powerful communication tool for any project with a spatial component. We will explore the capabilities of the platform, share best practices for designing effective stories, and guide participants through the process of creating their own story maps.

CDVS Workshop: R for data science: getting started, EDA, data wrangling

R and the Tidyverse are a data-first coding language that enables reproducible workflows. In this two-part workshop, you'll learn the fundamentals of R, everything you need to know to quickly get started. You'll learn how to access and install RStudio, how to wrangle data for analysis, gain a brief introduction to visualization, practice Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA), and how to generate reports.

CDVS Workshop: Intro to ArcGIS Pro

ArcGIS Pro is the newer alternative interface to the tried-and-true ArcGIS Desktop software (ArcMap), with essentially the same functions, but with more of a MS-Office feel. As a native 64-bit program, it also has superior performance. There are a few nice feature enhancements such as multiple layouts in a single project, and it's more fully integrated with ArcGIS Online (see schedule for workshops on ArcGIS Online or on StoryMaps).
