Data visualizations can take many forms, from using maps and charts to timelines and graphs. Palladio, a data-driven tool developed by Standford University, uses a combination of these visualizations to analyze relationships across time. This free workshop is an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to learn and gain hands-on experience with the latest digital tools such as Palladio. For a theortical discussion on its use, consider attending the Digital Humanities Seminar Series on Friday, April 7th at 11:30am.
Date: Wednesday, April 12, 2017, 11:30am- 1:00pm
Location: Library 264A (Instruction Classroom)
Workshop Details and Topics
Join us for an informal, hands-on exploration of Palladio (http://hdlab.stanford.edu/palladio), a digital visualization tool specially created by the Humanities+Design Lab at Stanford University for researchers in the humanities. Palladio is useful for visualizing complex data across time and space. Dr. Molly Taylor-Poleskey and Dr. Suzanne Sutherland will briefly outline how Palladio has been used in Stanford University’s Mapping the Republic of Letters digital humanities project. We will spend most of the session using sample data sets to create our own multi-dimensional visualizations. Feel free to bring your own data sets if you have them. Newcomers to the tool are also welcome.
