Date: 26 May 2017
Time: 11:00 – 13:30 (10:45 registration)
Venue: University of Essex, Wivenhoe Park, Colchester, Essex
The ESRC Business and Local Government Data Research Centre in conjunction with SASNet invites you to participate in a free seminar on Big Data Visualisation Tools and Techniques, featuring Dr Kamaran Fathulla, Senior Lecturer in Software Development at the University of Chichester Business School.
Data Visualisation is used to analyse data, and help users to understand the significance of the data more easily, by viewing it in a visual context. It is an extremely useful method of unveiling patterns, trends and correlations in big data that might not be as clear in another format.
In this seminar, Dr Kamaran Fathulla, Senior Lecturer in Software Development at the University of Chichester Business School, will discuss various data visualisation techniques for big data processing, including using Python programming and its Panda data structure to access Twitter data. Attendees will gain an understanding of the various tools and techniques with specific insight into the power of Python as a Big Data manipulation tool. Attendees should have a limited prior knowledge Python or any other programming language.
This seminar is open to businesses, local authorities and students with an interest in data visualisation. This event is theoretical and therefore will explain and describe various tools for data visualisation, with a focus on Python, however attendees will not use the programme during the session.
The seminar is taking place at the University of Essex Colchester campus from 11am-12.30pm (registration from 10.45am) and will be followed by a networking lunch until approximately 1.30pm. The main event will also be broadcast to the University’s Southend campus to allow attendees to watch from there. Registration in Southend will again begin at 10.45am and the event will conclude when the seminar finishes at 12.30pm.
