  • Introduction to R and RStudio

    What is R and RStudio? The term R is referring to both the programming language and the free software environment for data analysis and graphics. R is widely used for data science, statistical and mathematical computing, data visualization, algorithm and application development, report writing, etc. RStudio is currently a very popular way to not only write your scripts but also […]
  • Quick and easy mapping with R

    The R language is a very versatile tool, which explains why it is used by so many academics (with a growing community). Almost any statistical modeling can be done in the R platform, and several packages for a number of tools have been developed in the past years . It is easy to get lost when you have one simple […]

For those who might be considering sound projects but were not able to participate in the previous workshops, I hope this post will be useful to you as I recap […]
  • Sonification for Data Communication

    A few weeks ago my partner shared a TED Talk with me that changed how I conceptualize data communication. In it Dr. Wanda Diaz Merced, an astronomer who lost her eyesight in her early twenties, discusses her journey back into science after this setback. A crucial technique helped her interpret hefty astronomy data sets- sonification. Sonification turns data into sound. […]

    Between January 29 and February 27, the Digital Fellows ran their annual Digital Research Institute (DRI), which teaches foundational skills for doing digital research, as a remote Workshop Series. For this iteration of the institute, we transformed our usual in-person, 4-day institute into a series of workshops held remotely over 5 weekends. Each Saturday, 28 participants from 18 different programs […]
  • GIS at Scale with Google Earth Engine

    Sometimes your GIS project needs some extra oomph. Maybe finding the data you need to understand deforestation in Brazil is giving you a headache. Or, you need to run a machine learning algorithm on 50 gigabytes of weather station data and your poor laptop is melting the finish off of your dining room table. Google Earth Engine (GEE) is here […]
  • DARC Open Meeting Recap

    Over the past couple of years, the Digital Archive Research Collective (DARC) has created resources and fostered community among digital archivists and researchers at The Graduate Center. As part of our effort to build a community of practice around digital archival work, we created a Wiki with articles on various resources for archival research, led an event series, and hosted […]
