Sam Martin,


In a world where data is becoming increasingly vast and digital, the demand to make sense of and visualise this information becomes increasingly necessary.

Whether you need to mine and visualise data for research into social habits, health, politics, crime or more - this workshop aims to give you the skills to source pubically available data, map and visualise it too.

This half-day workshop will provide you with an introduction into how mine Twitter, Instagram and Youtube for social data, as well as give you the tools and skills to analyse and visualise your data sets.

Course participants will:

  • Learn to use simple techniques to mine the public Twitter, Instagram and Youtube APIs
  • Learn how to clean your data using Google Spreadsheets and Google Add-ons
  • Learn how to use Qualitative software to analyse tweets for co-occurring patterns, topics and trends
  • Learn how to use data visualisation software like Gephi and coding languags like D3.js to create interactive networks
  • Learn how to map and visualise text and image data collected from Twitter and Instagram onto dynamic and interactive maps that you can embed into your projects

The course will be taught using the latest iMacs in a training suite at the Camden Learning Centre, London.  Please click on the link below to register.
