Elijah Meeks on Data Vizualisation, 
brought to you by the Pelagios Network

14 July at 17.00 BST / 09.00 PST via Zoom (link to be supplied after signup)

For the past decade, Elijah Meeks[1] has been working on the challenges
of how to visualize big (complex and messy) data in ways that empower
users. 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[2] 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!

Gethin Rees and Elton Barker
