Data Parse & Cleanse – the hard part of visual analytics + Alteryx tool demo
5:30 – 6:00 Networking for friends, internships, jobs, help, hiring, tips, tricks
6:00 – 6:15 Introduction about Tacoma Visual Analytics & Congressional Data Challenge https://labs.loc.gov/experiments/congressionalchallenge
6:15 – 7:30 Our own Jim Bilbao and Michael Mixon will demonstrate their favorite data cleansing tool, Alteryx.
Alteryx is not only a visual analytics tool, but also has powerful data cleansing features and functions that enhance other visual analytics tools, including Tableau and Microsoft. Data cleansing is the most time-consuming part of visual analytics. It is arguably the most important step of any visualization and builds the foundation for responsible storytelling. Overview:
– Repeatable, reliable and time-saving – benefits of adding data cleaning tools to your visualization workflow
– Timing of data cleaning – as data is collected or just before the visualization – case for both
– Must have automation rules for everyone’s cleaning cart
– Innovating automation rules to pull off the impossible – making use of very dirty data feeds
Come prepared to learn, ask questions and discuss and share data cleansing techniques for efficient and influential storytelling.
7:30 – 8:00 Discussion for the Good of the Order
