DVS Workshop: Intro to ArcGIS Pro
ArcGIS Pro is the newer alternative interface to the tried-and-true ArcGIS Desktop software (ArcMap). It has essentially the same functions, but with more of a MS-Office feel. As a native 64-bit program, it also has superior performance. There are a few nice feature enhancements such as multiple layouts in a single project. It's more fully integrated with ArcGIS Online (see schedule for upcoming workshop on ArcGIS Online). ArcGIS Pro can help you analyze or visualize digital data that has a locational component, and we'll discuss starting points for obtaining data. Examples will focus on social science data, but attendees are encouraged to ask questions regarding their own needs and will be welcome to make one-on-one appointments later for more focused instruction. This is an introductory class, and it's not necessary to be familiar with GIS software beforehand.

DVS Workshop: Python for Data Science: Pandas and Jupyter Lab
Python can be a great option for exploration, analysis and visualization of tabular data, such as spreadsheets and CSV files, if you know which tools to use and how to get started. This workshop will take you through some practical examples of using Python and specifically the Pandas module to load data from files and transform it into a standard "tidy" format, so it's ready to analyze and visualize. You will also get some experience working in JupyterLab, the new flexible programming environment which contain Jupyter Notebooks, a file browser, and more.
DVS Workshop: Intro to R: Data Transformations, Data Structures, and the Tidyverse
A gentle introduction to R and the Tidyverse using RStudio. This two-hour, hands-on session introduces data wrangling, data types, variable assignments, and packages. Our focus will be the Tidyverse, specifically the dplyr and ggplot packages. Tidyverse, is an approachable set of consistent data science tools enabling the R statistical programming language.
