Spring ’16 Workshop Announced: Decision Design and Visual Analytics for Sustainability Applications

The Nexus Lab for Digital Humanities and Transdisciplinary Informatics will offer a workshop in Decision Design and Visual Analytics for Sustainability Applications during the Spring Semester of 2016. The workshop aims to connect problem solving for sustainability solutions with training in network modeling, data visualization, and communication of results from mixed methods analysis and decision making.

The workshop is free and open to ASU faculty, staff, and students. It will meet once a week for 2 hours on Friday afternoons, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. There are no prerequisites, and the workshop will accommodate all levels of experience with programming and data analysis. To register, please go to http://bit.ly/1NIX6JL and fill out the registration form. Seats will be limited, so please register as soon as you are able to make the commitment.

Technologies taught in this class include ORA (network modeling and analysis software), Javascript (interactive data visualizations), and python (basic data manipulation). This will not be a class on programming, but will instruct on these technologies where applicable to mixed-methods sustainability research, communications, and decision making.
