Date and Time:

Julia Collins

Whether your data science adventures rely on data you produced or leverage data sources managed by others, the ability to explore, analyze, and visualize data all depend on access to the data themselves. The ability of other data scientists to verify and build upon your findings also depends on their access to the same data sources. This talk will review the role of data curation in the data science workflow. We will review data management best practices applicable to all levels of data generation and use, from small exploratory studies to large satellite data sets
