Description

As official partners of NYC Open Data Week, Datavized Technologies is hosting a half-day, hands-on workshop on how to use NYC Open Data with Datavized easy to use software tools, TwoTone and Geometric. Participants will learn how to use Geometric to turn NYC Open Data into fully immersive 3D experiences that work on web browsers and in virtual reality and also TwoTone, a free and open-source web app that turns data into music, imagined and developed by Datavized Technologies with the support of Google News Initiative (launching March 5, 2019).


Datavized TwoTone

Datavized, with the support of Google News Initiative, has developed TwoTone - a free and open-source web-based tool for turning data into music. Turning data into sound has advantages. Just like in the cinema, sound adds another layer to understanding. It also has potential uses for people who are visually impaired. TwoTone is a fun and intuitive way to make your own compositions, without any prior musical or technical knowledge. In this Workshop participants will learn how to use the tool, sonify NYC Open Data, and share their projects online. Select projects will be featured on the TwoTone website launching March 5, 2019.


Datavized Geometric

Learn how to easily build and share immersive 3D experiences in minutes without coding using Geometric, a new web-based software tool by Datavized Technologies. In this workshop participants will use the Geometric dashboard tool and learn the fundamentals of immersive data visualization, how to prepare and clean location data sets, import and map geospatial data to a 3D globe for a 360° view of trends and insights, and customize a 3D project for presentation on the web and in virtual reality or mixed reality headsets. To celebrate Open Data Week, this workshop will show examples of immersive data visualization using data from the NYC Open Data site and several other open data sites. Each workshop participant will have access to a free Geometric Public account.
