Workshop Description

Looking for alternative ways to showcase data? Analyzing information using visualizations is one of the most efficient ways to both "distant read" and convey data; one way to create these visualizations is through graphing and network software. This workshop will focus on the program Gephi, the Open Graph Viz Platform. In this session, in addition to building visually-striking graphs, you will learn methods to interpret the information with data and network analysis. By using Gephi, datasets stand out for your audience and makes research "pop," particularly in conference or poster presentations. This is a hands-on workshop, so participants may either bring their own datasets or practice using one that has been prepared in advance.
