“Data in Everyday Life” activity
Your daily routine might be familiar to you, but what might we learn if we combine data about the lives of hundreds of other UCSD students and faculty? All week long you can participate in this campus-wide questionnaire, answering questions about your day-to-life, like how much coffee you drink and how long your commute to campus. Join us Friday, February 15 at noon in the Data & GIS Lab as we present the results and demonstrate the software platforms used to collect, analyze, and visualize the survey data!
The Data & GIS Lab supports the full data lifecycle in quantitative, qualitative, and geographical research at UCSD. We can help you find, use, work with, organize, and manage geospatial, numeric and textual data in various formats. Stop by the lab this week to learn more about the services we offer!
