Join us for the Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibition, which makes a beautiful case for the importance of data visualization.
The Places & Spaces exhibition showcases the visualization of complex data in innovative and beautiful formats, using groundbreaking methods for making sense of large streams of data. Each year new visualizations are added, culled from international and interdisciplinary submissions. Four new macroscopes have been chosen to travel with the exhibition, and will make their debut at Vanderbilt University.
These four macroscopes use data that varies tremendously in terms of subject matter and method of collection: city smells found on social media, a library collection mapped in time and space, institutional partnerships revealed through publications, and ship locations tracked by satellite. However, they all present data visually to make new perspectives possible.
The macroscopes will join the 100 maps of science, sculpture, and hands on activities that currently comprise the exhibition. The exhibition will be on display in the Central Library, Sarratt Student Center, Rand Hall, and the Wond'ry.
Location: 306 A-B LH
Many students participated in the SoM annual curricular retreat in January, which focused on continuing to refine our assessment and portfolio processes.
The faculty and the student curricular committee are co-hosting a Town Hall to share the key issues that were discussed, and ideas that have since been generated to advance these programs.
We hope you will join us on February 23 at noon in LH 208. Feel free to bring your lunch.
