Transcript of "Creating Usable Data"

  1. 1. Creating Usable DataUsable Data and “Actionable” InformationJonathan CallahanMazama ScienceMAZAMA SCIENCEData – Information – Knowledge
  2. 2. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 2From Data to DecisionData“Actionable” InformationKnowledgeInformation
  3. 3. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 3Data – Information – Knowledge pathwayGraphic concept from nathan.com
  4. 4. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 4Mazama Science 4From Theory to Practice.“Data – Information – Knowledge” is the theory.Data files and software is the practice.How do data managers start creating “Usable Data”?How does this lead to “Actionable Information”?
  5. 5. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 5Mazama Science 5For Usable Data – Identify Your Users!Do you want to support analysts?(data only)Do you want to support authors?(data summaries and charts)Do you want to engage local citizens?(maps and local information)Do you want to support decision makers?(integrated stories)
  6. 6. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 6Support Analysts with Data.Analysts want raw data.They want easy access.They know how to work withdata.They have their own tools.Give them big CSV files.
  7. 7. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 7Support Authors with Tables and Charts.Authors want data summaries.They want to tell stories.They dont have great dataskills.They will publish on the web.Give them summary tablesand good data graphics.(.png)
  8. 8. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 8Engage Citizens with Maps & Local Info.Citizens want to know what isgoing on near them.They want maps.They want simple explanations.They will influence decisionmakers.Give them web pages withtext, maps and charts.
  9. 9. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 9Support Decision Makers with Stories.Decision Makers want“Actionable Information”.They want integrated stories.They dont have expertknowledge.They need well informed citizensto back them up.Give them compelling stories.
  10. 10. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 10Mazama Science 10Keep It Simple – Data and ChartsDataASCII CSV files on a web siteText files (.txt, .pdf) with metadata describing the dataData summaries and chartsSummarize important results in tables.Study other sites for excellent chart examples.Are your charts easy to understand?Do they tell a story?Are they beautiful?Provide charts that can be copied. (.png)Build a simple web presentation with html and javascript.
  11. 11. STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Mazama Science 11Mazama Science 11Keep It Simple – Maps and StoriesMapsDont require the use of interactive maps.Provide static versions of maps. (.png)Provide KML files.Integrated StoriesTell compelling stories!Who are the actors?What is at stake?What do we know?Use web pages to integrate information.Have “data consumers” write the stories.

  15. 15. Mazama Science 15STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Number CrunchersFastAccurateConsistent> 50 years of evolutionVery good at what they do!
  16. 16. Mazama Science 16STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Pattern RecognizersFast!Accurate ~Creative!!> 50K years of evolutionAwesome at what we do!
  17. 17. Mazama Science 17STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Pattern RecognitionHumans are better thancomputers are recognizingpatterns.
  18. 18. Mazama Science 18STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Pattern RecognitionSensors can generate andcomputers can processmillions of measurements.When presented visually,humans recognize patternsinstantly.
  19. 19. Mazama Science 19STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Pattern Recognition• Humans communicate by telling stories.• Familiar pictures help us tell those stories.
  20. 20. Mazama Science 20STRIPE Regional Meeting -- Apr 29 - May 01, 2013Pattern RecognitionWhen we want to tell storieswith data we use graphics.Including visualizations thatmap onto the real world.And charts that arecompletely abstract.Telling stories with data requires data visualization.
