From data to information
In this class you will get familiar with the tools and tricks for managing data, creating good, usefu tables and figures. You will learn how to present the information – and not only data – depending on your goal: A figure for your term paper, a table with results for a conference presentation or a map for your Master’s thesis.
Basics on entering, managing, modifying and displaying scientific data will be taught. We will discuss good, mediocre and weak figures and tables and you will learn about common errors that distort the message or support an erroneous conclusion. You will learn to describe diagrams used for data visualization and evaluate their advantages and disadvantages. Furthermore, you will learn to design maps in order to show geographical data and essential map elements. Individual training using a variety of programs (e.g. Excel and R) will be part of it as well. We will compile a document on guidelines for data visualization.
