Hands-on activity on data visualization

Last week, I co-hosted a workshop at the Thought For Food Academy Program, an international event dedicated to engaging and empowering the next generation of innovators to solve the complex and important challenges facing our food system. And for that to be, the annual TFF Academy and Summit bring together interdisciplinary professionals from science, entrepreneurship, industry, policy, and design to explore, debate and create ‘what’s next’ in food and agriculture. The TFF Academy Program took place in Escola Eleva, Rio de Janeiro, from 23 to 26 July. The full TFF Program can be accessed here.

I had the opportunity to propose a hands-on activity on Data visualization for spatial data analysis as part of the Big Data and GIS specialization track offered to young students and entrepreneurs from all over the world. In total, 35 participants from 20 different nationalities participated in the workshop. I co-hosted this track with Brittany Dahl, from ESRI Australia, and Vinicius Filier, from Imagem Soluções de Inteligência Geográfica.

The resources for this hands-on activity (slides and instructions) can be found on my personal website.
