Workshops

In collaboration with uOttawa’s IT Solutions, Digital Humanities in the Faculty of Arts is pleased to offer a virtual data visualization workshop series. Both workshops will unfold in two parts to allow for participants to first learn the tool and techniques and then have time to work on them between sessions.


Part 1: Networks with Gephi

with Jarno van der Kolk and Peter Darveau

September 27 and October 4, 2021

10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Visualization of data is usually one of the most important steps when interpreting the data and also for conveying the results. In the first part of the Data Visualization workshop series, we’ll use Gephi to investigate visualizing networks. For example, these can be networks of people and how they are connected to each other. While this can be done manually for a few dozen people, when you get to a few hundred, you will want some automation to help you.

(Re)watch the two parts of the Data Visualisation workshop on Networks with Gephi!

Networks with Gephi (part 1), presented by Dr. Jarno van der Kolk. Presented on Monday, September 27, 2021. Looking for a quick introduction to Gephi? This workshop introduces the network visualisation tool and demonstrates how to use some basic features through a sample dataset is available here: https://bit.ly/gephi-hs-dl.
Networks with Gephi (part 2), presented by Dr. Jarno van der Kolk. This workshop took place on Monday, October 4, 2021 and goes through the exercises assigned in the slides accompanying the first part of the workshop. Dr. van der Kolk demonstrates how he produces the networks in the exercises and takes up questions from participants.

Part 2: Interactive visualizations with D3.js

with Peter Darveau and Jarno van der Kolk

November 1 and November 8, 2021

10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

REGISTER NOW!

The D3.js framework offers the more interactive ways of sharing data. In this second part of the Data Visualization workshop, we’ll explore how the D3.js framework can be used to create web-accessible interactive visualizations. These are dynamically generated webpages that can be part of your website. It will load data from a source you specify to generate visualizations you fully control so you can tell your story.

This workshop is in two parts. Be sure to register for both dates.
