Visualization Forum

Analyzing and visualizing "big historical data"

Speaker:Richard Marciano and Chien-Yi Hou
Digital Innovation Lab , UNC
Date: Friday, November 18, 2011
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Location: D106 LSRC, Duke
Lunch will be served.


As part of a startup project at the DIL lab, sponsored by the College of Arts and Science at UNC, called "Connecting People, Past, and Place", we are exploring the challenge of automating and crowdsourcing the extraction and georeferencing of household records and historical maps. This includes the visualization of large collections of cultural data. We will discuss several ongoing projects and hope to spur some good conversations!


The Visualization seminar series is a forum for faculty, staff and students from across the university to share their research involving the development and/or application of visualization methodologies. Our goal is to build an interdisciplinary community of visualization experts whose combined knowledge can facilitate research and promote innovation.
