Lühidalt FAIR-ist - 02.05.2024, Tallinn - kutsega

FAIR põhimõtted, mis esmakordselt avaldati 2016. aastal, sisaldavad häid andmehaldustavasid, mille eesmärk on muuta andmed leitavaks, ligipääsetavaks, ühilduvaks ja taaskasutatavaks. Iga täht FAIR-is viitab põhimõtete (15) loendile. Kuigi FAIR põhimõtted pärinevad loodusteadustest, saab neid rakendada kõigis teadusvaldkondades. Alates nende avaldamisest on Euroopa Liit, riiklikud rahastajad ja ülikoolid väljendanud nende põhimõtete toetust ja heakskiitu. Ja olgem ausad, mõnda neist asjadest te teete ilmselt juba praegu. Sellel kursusel käime läbi kõik FAIR põhimõtted ja kuidas neid reaalses elus rakendatakse. Nii tead juba, mida taotluse kirjutamisel, oma andmehalduskava täites või oma uurimistööd tehes arvesse võtta.

Data Visualisation I - Figures - 18.04.2023

Due to high demand, on the 4th of April 2023, ELIXIR-Estonia will hold a repeat data management online course: Data Visualization I - Figures. The course will be held in English

All researchers will be handling some data at some point in their careers. However, the data, in its regular shape (tables), is quite hard to grasp for most people. Especially if there is a lot of it, this is where data visualization comes to help. The idea is to bring forth the essential aspects of the data - to tell a story. However, just putting data into a graph or figure might do more harm than good. Not only could it give wrong conclusions, but it also might be misleading. This is one of the main reasons why the exact way how you visualize the data is fundamental. 

This lecture is part of a series of lectures and workshops called “Data visualisation.” The first lecture will discuss why data visualisation is important and what we should consider when designing it. This means what chart type to pick, how much information to include, what (and how) to highlight, and so on. This lecture will be followed up by a workshop in May.
