As the web continues to connect people, communities, and information, exciting opportunities emerge for digital collaboration. Open repositories providing free, timely access to authoritative datasets are expanding in several domains (government, earth sciences, biology). Open Source software and web standards provide efficient, powerful tools to work with these data. By exploring these tools you can extend technical skills and engage in new forms of inquiry, problem solving, and collaboration.

Join us in the Data Studio with Russ White, numeric and spatial data specialist, to explore:

1. Open Repositories providing access to data sets in different disciplines

2. Free and Open Source tools for data analysis and sharing

3. Data archival tools and best practices, to enable you to contribute and share your data.
