“SPSS Hands-On Workshop II” with Nancy Kechner/Kathy Gerber

January 1, 2008

Wednesday, October 1, 2008, at 12:00 p.m.

The Research Computing Lab will host two hands-on workshops for the
statistical package SPSS.  Faculty, staff and students are welcome
to attend, and no prior experience with SPSS is needed.

Both workshops will be held in the Brown Science and Engineering
Electronic Classroom in Clark Hall.  The schedule is as follows:

SPSS Workshop I: September 29: 12:00 pm-1:30 pm
SPSS Workshop II: October 1: 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

The first session is designed for those who have either never worked in
SPSS, or who have limited experience. The session is designed to take a
data set from Excel into SPSS for analysis. Topics include descriptive
statistics, understanding label and values, recoding variables, and
finishing basic analysis for presentation.

The Wednesday session is for those who have either attended the first
workshop or who have limited experience with SPSS.  In this session you
will learn how to implement basic statistics such as the chi-square test,
simple linear regression and t-tests.

Space is limited, so if you plan to attend, please let us know at
243-8799 or by submitting a help request to

Beyond Tools: The Shared Questions about Interpretation that Link Computer Science to the Humanities

The phrase “digital humanities” suggests an encounter with digital technology itself — which might seem to involve departments of computer science only insofar as they build tools for us to use. But as collaborations between humanists and computer scientists grow more common, it’s becoming clear that these disciplines are working on shared, surprisingly fundamental questions.

GIS Workshop: Learning Old-School Mapping Techniques

February 25, 2014

How did folks make maps before GPS and satellite imagery?  In this workshop we’ll focus on plane table mapping.  Using just a flat surface, a sheet of paper, a straight edge, and a pencil we’ll learn techniques to create accurate maps for large geographic areas.   With plane table mapping, if you can see it, you can map it.

GIS Workshop: Working With Rasters Using Open Source Tools

February 25, 2014

QGIS is a popular open source software for working with spatial data.  The Geospatial Data Abstraction Library (GDAL) is an open source utility library for raster processing that’s integrated with QGIS.  In this workshop we will use QGIS and GDAL with freely available datasets to create elevation contour lines and identify the highest and lowest elevation points inside a study area.  Gain the skills you need to perform your own terrain analysis using free open source tools.
