Exploring DC data using Spatio-Temporal Visualization
For the month of March, we're excited to introduce a novel way of doing data viz. Our friends at Habidatum are experts on spatio-temporal visualization, and we'll explore some DC-area datasets together! Spatio-temporal viz is an approach to viewing data where time and geography are equally weighted and viewed as one. By looking at data in this way, we can find patterns and correlations that would be difficult if not impossible to find using traditional geospatial (think election map). This type of visualization can be used to build a more complete understanding of modern cities - an area's accessibility to transit during different times of day, the evening economy and how it correlates to crime reporting, or the impact of a sporting event on the local economy. It's a type of visualization and analytical approach that is important for its capacity to make big data understandable and interactive in a way that is more engaging and insightful than the current data dashboard status quo. Together we'll explore our very own modern "city" — DC! — using a radical new approach for analysis. This workshop will allow you to discover Chronotope — a platform for analysis, visualization and processing of spatio-temporal data from a variety of sources, giving you the ability to locate and explore patterns and correlations in 3D. We will first take a look at different examples, and later will explore the patterns of human behaviour in the district. Schedule: 6:30 - 7:00 Food, drinks, networking 7:00 - 7:45 Spatio-Temporal Analysis Talk by Habidatum 7:45 - 8:30 Workshop & Hands-on with Chronotype 8:30 on: Post-event libations and further networking at Highline

    What we're about

    Public Group

    Data Visualization DC is a non-profit professional group that meets monthly to discuss data visualization, data communication, infographics, exploratory data analysis, charts and graphs, perceptual psychology, and more! Our members are data journalists, data scientists, business intelligence professionals, and others who tell stories and persuade with data. Meeting topics are varied and range from tutorials on basic concepts and their applications, to success stories from local practitioners, to discussions of tools, new technologies, and best practices. All are welcome -- to attend, to meet others, and to present their work!

    Data Visualization DC is a Program of Data Community DC, Inc.
