The goal of the project is to improve the value of research produced by students, faculty, and staff at WSU Spokane. In order to reach this goal, we will 1 create a data visualization lab that allows people involved in research to learn about data visualization software; 2 teach 10 hands-on workshops on the use of key data visualization software to improve 133s' ability to use these programs with their data; 3 hold data consultations upon request to help 133s with their data-related questions; and 4 provide open drop-in hours to allow 133s to explore and practice data visualization techniques. With these activities, we will see a increased ability of data visualization lab users to use data visualization software; b that those 133s will use their increased skills to improve the visual displays of the data generated by their research; and c these users will use these skills to increase the value of their research to the university and the community.
