Promoting Data Literacy through Data Visualization Storyboards

  • Westin Riverfront Resort Avon, Colorado (map)

This is a free workshop being offered as a pre-conference workshop at the Sustaining Colorado Watersheds Conference. You do not need to be a conference registrant to participate in this workshop.

Bring out your data! Come with your laptop and questions and be prepared to dig into your community data.

  • What are the concerns relating to water in your community?

  • How are you using data collection and visualization tools to communicate water issues?

We will work through a community issue from data collection and analysis to a mapped visualization and look at stream storytelling in a holistic way.

This workshop will discuss the use of graphics to illustrate and communicate data stories that are both engaging and informative. Individuals with a background in local community organization, government, academia and private business are encouraged to attend

A web-based platform, eRAMS (Environmental Resource Assessment and Management System), has been developed for these open-source tools enabling sharing of data and analytics to promote interdisciplinary research. The eRAMS platform can easily be used by multiple stakeholders to share data and information. CSU is developing several tools for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to manage water quality information and analytics.

To advance Data Literacy, The Colorado Water Quality Monitoring Council is partnering with Colorado State University’s One Water Solutions Institute (OWSI) to elicit opinions and provide a network analysis of existing data collection and analysis tools currently available to characterize water quality and availability in Colorado.

Elephantfishco will be with us to provide their expertise on GIS services, geospatial data analysis and cartographic design. Elephantfish delivers high-quality products including 3D geologic models, location maps and everything in between.
