Preparing and Exploring Local Public Data with Tableau @ REAL Classroom, 3 W Instruction Room | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Federal, state, and local governments are increasingly sharing datasets to improve transparency and allow scholars, businesses, and citizens leverage data to conduct research and improve their cities. In this workshop, we will find one dataset from local government, prepare it for analysis, and explore it using the visualization tool, Tableau Public. You will leave the workshop with hands on experience working with a dataset, as well as some resources to help you find data for your own projects.

Part of the MSU Digital Humanities Workshop series, this introductory workshop is open to anyone – students, faculty, staff, the public – from any disciplinary background.

An RSVP is encouraged but not required to attend the workshop. RSVP here.
