R RStudio

R and RStudio Working Group

Returning Fall 2019! Gain knowledge of the R Programming language. All skill levels and programming backgrounds welcome. Schedule Varies.

LDWG

Linked Data Working Group

Explore linked data basics and real applications. Mondays, 12:20-1:00, EBL training room.

XQuery

XQuery Working Group

If you’re working with any kind of structured data—like, for instance, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI)—you will benefit from learning XQuery.

Python

Python Working Group

Do you have a project where a Python script would help you get the job done? Each week during the first hour, this working group will help beginners get started with Python. The second hour is a drop-in session where participants can figure out how to solve their own problems by leveraging the many available Python packages.

GIS

GIS Fall Working Group

This working group will explore how to extend your mapping projects within GIS with code.  Both Python and R introductory lessons and instruction on how to best use scripting to enhance your GIS projects.  We will be working in and outside of standard GIS packages.  You will need to bring your laptop for these sessions.

Linked Data

Linked Data

Linked data encompasses information that is coded, stored and queried as a mathematical graph rather than as a hierarchical set of relationships as in a relational database. Linked data allows the relationships between data points to be easily expressed and prioritized.

Data

Data Curation

Discover how to encode your data and share it with peers by employing standards for data documentation and data citation. We can also advise you about data management protocols and data repositories.

Education Technology

Education Technology

Education Technologies are a key component of the Vanderbilt University Strategic Plan. By embracing these new technologies we foster innovation in learning, teaching, and discovery.

Digital Exhibits

Exhibits

Current and past exhibits displaying Vanderbilt University's unique holdings.

Digital Humanities

Digital Humanities

The digital humanities is an interdisciplinary area of research involving the application of computational methods to humanistic topics of inquiry. Digital humanities projects range widely in scale and technologies.

ETDs

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Defending a dissertation is a major scholarly milestone. The Electronic Theses and Dissertations repository at Vanderbilt University ensures that your intellectual work will receive wide distribution.

Remote Sensing

Remote Sensing Working Group

Do you have a project that could benefit from using satellite or aerial imagery? What about LiDAR, Radar, drone or hyperspectral imagery? Have you ever been curious about what Remote Sensing is or how you can apply it to your work? The group will take on different topics in remote sensing each week along with how to obtain data.

Open Access Publishing

Open Access Publishing

Support and infrastructure for new and open publications.

GIS

Geographic Information Systems

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) enable users to create, combine, and analyze geocoded data -- that is, information connected in some manner to geographic coordinates. GIS tools range from simple and lightweight applications to extremely powerful and complicated suites of software.
