Symposium: Data Management for Dissemination and Data Visualization
August 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The need for scientists to effectively communicate is becoming more apparent and important. This includes all fisheries professionals and all aspects of our profession. Disseminating and displaying fisheries data is an important part of communicating our science. The two major components of successfully achieving this are management of the data for access and dissemination and data visualization. Proper data management and data warehousing techniques are vital to creating an access layer from which data can be quickly and easily accessed by dashboards, applications, websites and other tools. Data visualization allows sharing of these data through graphs, charts, information graphics, maps and other visual objects. Thus, data management and visualization work together to communicate complex information in an engaging, accessible and understandable presentation. This symposium will bring together experts from both areas to demonstrate best practices and concrete examples of fisheries data communication.
