[Micronet] Summer School Session #3: Turning Data into Information

James Kent Dudek
Dear Colleagues,

Hope to see you at this next session in the summer school series!  Please see the announcement below.  This session will be streamed live and archived at



Greetings -

Our next meeting will be part of the IDMG-sponsored Summer Data Series
"Turning Data into Information". It will be Tuesday, July 13 from
10:30am-Noon in 60 Barrows. If you can't get away from your desk, a live
stream of the session will be running at
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bpawg-at-berkeley The session will also be
archived for future viewing (and reviewing).

Russ Acker and Pam Brown from the Office of Planning & Analysis will be
leading the session. What will the session cover? From the IDMG Summer
Series webpage: http://idmg.berkeley.edu/summerseries.htm

Making data-driven decisions in a complex environment like UC Berkeley
usually means drawing on multiple sources of data. Preparing and presenting
complex data doesn't have to mean dense tables and long narratives.
Infographics allow the analyst and presenter to deliver a wealth of data in
easy-to-digest portions that does not shortchange the audience. This session
will focus on tools such as sparklines, treemaps and other forms of
infographics that will allow you to fully inform your audience with clarity
and precision.

Hope to see you there!
