Data Visualization Showcase Will Highlight Recent UNC Projects

How can data visualization techniques help you explore research data? Five UNC researchers will demonstrate their projects during a Data Visualization Showcase on November 12 in the Davis Library Research Hub (2nd floor).

Data visualization is the presentation of data in graphical formats that aid comprehension or analysis. It is one of the services of the UNC Library’s Research Hub, which provides data visualization software and assistance for UNC researchers at all levels.


The five presentations will be:

  • Oral History Resources for K-12 Teacher (Matt Jansen and Phil McDaniel, UNC Libraries);
  • Prospect: A Data Visualization Collaboratory (Michael Newton, UNC Digital Innovation Lab);
  • Visualizations of Time, People, and Spaces (Sidharth Thakur, Renaissance Computing Institute);
  • Data Visualization in Cancer Research (J.S. Marron, Department of Statistics and Operations Research and Lineberger Cancer Center);
  • Visualizing Water Resources of the American West (Dean Farrell, UNC Libraries).

Networking time, along with tours of the Davis Library Research Hub and the Liquid Galaxy Google Earth display will follow the presentations.
