Upcoming Event: Data to Action

 In Events, News

Collecting, managing, and analyzing data are important steps in any water monitoring program. It’s easy to end up with piles of data from each field season, but it takes some careful thought to know what to do with it. After the success of Atlantic Water Network’s Water to Web workshop series in Winter 2019, we are excited to continue sharing data skills in our next workshop: Data to Action.

Atlantic Water Network is hosting a one-and-a-half day Data to Action workshop on December 11th and 12th, 2019, in Moncton, NB. This workshop will focus on data analysis: turning all that water quality data collected over the field season into a presentation of useful knowledge about your watershed. In this workshop, we will provide hands-on experience with the following:

  • a refresher on data management using Atlantic DataStream
  • a deep-dive into data analysis strategies using Excel and R (no R experience necessary!)
  • a number of ways to communicate your results to different audiences
