Description:
When working with large social media datasets, quantitative and mixed-methods approaches that draw¬†especially on visual representations of ‘big data’ have become an indispensable part of the scholarly¬†research and publication process. This data analytics and visualization workshop will focus on a number of¬†emerging standard tools and methods for large-scale data analytics, using Twitter data to illustrate these¬†approaches. The workshop will introduce you to the open-source platform TCAT as a capable and reliable¬†tool for data gathering from the Twitter API, and to the high-end data analytics software Tableau as a¬†powerful means of processing and visualizing large datasets.

Presenter:
Dr. Axel Bruns, Professor in the Digital Media Research Centre at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia
