Webinar: Data Science for Geosciences: Data Acquisition

Hao Zhong, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA

This webinar kicked off DCO's four-part webinar series on data science in the geosciences, presented by the DCO Data Science Team at Tetherless World Constellation, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The series covers the data life cycle in the order of data acquisition, data processing, and data analysis. For this episode Hao Zhong discusses general data acquisition in geoscience, featuring a recent example of legacy data rescue and management by the Data Science Team. Demonstrations were given in optical character recognition and spreadsheet-processing software as well as Jupyter notebooks for running R statistical language and Python.
