UC Love Data Week: Data-Driven Animation for Research and Science Communication

Feb 17, 2023
10:00 AM–11:30 AM

In this 90-minute workshop, Dr. Jessica Kendall-Bar will introduce techniques that transform data into visualizations that accelerate research and facilitate communication. Kendall-Bar will share tools and tips to bring your data to life with data visualization tools and coding languages from PowerPoint to R, Python, Javascript, ArcGIS, Adobe After Effects, and Autodesk Maya. We will share tutorials and demos, show examples of the visualizations that are possible within these programs, and have some time at the end to do some collective dataviz brainstorming regarding specific datasets from workshop attendees.

Speaker: Dr. Jessie Kendall Bar (UC San Diego)
Moderated by: Jen Cormier (UC San Diego Library)
