Who We Are
Our group is open to anyone (including USGS employees across mission areas and disciplines and non-USGS/non-federal employees) who is interested in data visualization practices, techniques, and projects.
What We Do
The Data Visualization Collaboration Area, as part of the USGS's Community for Data Integration, was founded to serve as a professional hub and creative home to promote open data visualization trainings and discussions.
We hope to foster a creative, collaborative community of people who come to data vis from a variety of backgrounds with any set of design tools.
As we grow, we plan to:
We recognize that everyone will have their own favorite set of tools. So, we hope to focus on supporting members as they practice their own process of data visualization.
