Wrangling Big Data for Natural Resource Projects

ESA Education’s Water Cooler Chat September 24th, 2021 

Wrangling Big Data for Natural Resource Projects
Date: September 24, 2021
Time: 4:00PM – 5:00 PM Eastern

Are you using “big data” or geospatial datasets in some of your projects? How did you obtain these data wrangling skills and what do you think are the major challenges when learning how to work with data? What resources would you recommend to those new to wrangling numbers and advanced statistical analysis? Interested in opportunities to work with long-term datasets managed by federal agencies?

If any of these questions are of interest, this is a webinar for you! Grab your favorite beverage and join this Water Cooler Chat hosted by three graduate students that recently participated in the Scientists in Parks Fellows Program. Each panelist conducted a project in collaboration with the National Park Service that featured “big data”: either long-term ecological datasets, complex population analysis, and/or highly detailed spatial information, etc.
