In this talk he will discuss metric design and how data visualization is key to developing meaningful metrics that help us understand the subject matter rather than just naively present the data. Elijah's talk will be preceded by a short introduction to the Visualization Activity of the Pelagios Network and how to get involved. The Zoom meeting room has limited capacity. If you would like to attend, please sign up in advance here: https://forms.gle/7Hay8kHxWezukx4V6 We look forward to seeing you there!
