The Research Data Service will resume walk-in hours Tuesday, September 4th from 12pm – 4pm Monday through Thursday. See the calendar for specific areas of help, but generally, 12pm – 2pm help is available for R, Stata, SPSS & SAS and 2pm – 4pm for help with GIS. Data and general reference help is available during walk-in hours as well as by appointment.
R and Python Open Labs will start the third week of September with dates & times announced the week prior on the Workshops & Training page.
Please join us Thursday April 5th for the third annual Art of Data Visualization event in Davis Auditorium, Schapiro Center for Engineering & Physical Science Research.
For full schedule and to RSVP, visit the event site.
The following titles were recently added or updated.
Come join us for the launch of Map Club with five fast-paced hack sessions geared toward the rapid acquisition of skills in geospatial technology held in the Lehman Library, room 215.
Led by DSSC Spatial Research Intern, Emily Fuhrman, each session provides an informal and fun opportunity for the exploration of a web-based library or framework. Sessions will be loosely divided into three phases: background and setup, self-paced making, and sharing.
All sessions are 2-4pm.
7/12 → Interactive Mapping with CartoDB.js [RSVP]
7/19 → Interactive Mapping with Kartograph [RSVP]
7/26 → GIS Data Processing with QGIS [RSVP]
8/2 → Interactive Mapping with Mapzen [RSVP]
8/9 → Geographic Projections with D3.js [RSVP]
Comparing Census data from one decade the next can be difficult since boundaries and variables can change. Trying to figure out those differences can be time consuming and sometimes frustrating. To help make this easier, NHGIS recently released 65 time series tables standardizing 2000 & 2010 100% count variables to the 2010 Census boundaries for ten geographic levels including tracts, block groups and 5 digit zip code tabulation areas (ZCTAs).
The tables are marked with a TS from within the Topic filter
Available standardized tables are listed in the Time Series Tables tab, and labeled Standardized to 2010 under the Geographic Integration column.
More information on time tables produced by the NHGIS can be found in the Data Documentation section, including both the geographically standardized tables as well as nominally integrated tables. The page includes methodology, and a PDF containing the complete list of variables within the time series datasets.
