Boot camps and working groups are returning in Fall 2019. More information to come.
Vanderbilt University's Institutional Repository (VUIR) is library-supported infrastructure which promotes and expands access to the intellectual output of the University.
Copyright protects a wide range of materials and can apply to any original work of authorship that is fixed in any tangible means of expression.
Returning Fall 2019! Gain knowledge of the R Programming language. All skill levels and programming backgrounds welcome. Schedule Varies.
Explore linked data basics and real applications. Mondays, 12:20-1:00, EBL training room.
If you’re working with any kind of structured data—like, for instance, the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI)—you will benefit from learning XQuery.
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.
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 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.
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 Technologies are a key component of the Vanderbilt University Strategic Plan. By embracing these new technologies we foster innovation in learning, teaching, and discovery.
Current and past exhibits displaying Vanderbilt University's unique holdings.
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.
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.
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.
Support and infrastructure for new and open publications.
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.
