"Using Tableau to Visualise, Understand, and Analyse Research Data"

Vejune Zemaityte (Deakin University, Melbourne)

This workshop will offer a short introduction to using Tableau for exploring datasets and visualising findings. Tableau is a visual analytics tool that offers users a simple and quick way to understand their data. Differently from other visualisation and analytics packages such as R, Tableau has a short learning curve as users do not have to learn a programming language or use code. Instead, anyone can visualise data by simply clicking and dragging. Participants of this workshop are invited to bring their laptops and try using their own versions of Tableau Desktop, although anyone is welcome to simply follow the presentation on screen.


• A free version of Tableau Desktop Public (only allows you to save files on your Tableau Public profile).

• A free 14-day trial version of Tableau Desktop Personal (allows you to save files to your computer).

"The Kinomatics Project: Big Data goes to the Movies"

Prof. Dr. Deb Verhoeven (UTS - University of Technology Sydney)

This presentation will showcase The Kinomatics Project – an international effort to collect, explore, analyse and represent digital data about the creative industries. Our research is collaborative, global and interdisciplinary. It is based on the premise that films can be understood as cultural goods that are distributed both between ‘territories’ or markets and across the globe according to industrially unique spatial patterns and temporal flows. Our project name is itself a combination of Kinematics; the study of the geometry of motion, and Kino; the term meaning cinema in many countries. Professor Deb Verhoeven, Director of the Kinomatics Project will present examples of the research team’s findings.

Die Veranstaltungen sind kostenlos und finden in englischer Sprache statt.
