  VantagePoint Training Session Part Two: Analyzing data (Lists, Co-occurrence matrices, Maps)
Location: Library Homer Rice Center (Ground Floor West)

VantagePoint is a powerful text-mining tool for discovering knowledge in text databases. It helps you quickly understand and navigate through large volumes of text-based information, giving you a better way to view your information and turn your information into knowledge. Multiple Science, Technology & Innovation (STI) data resources provide a potent opportunity to enhance university research, helping to address such issues as:

  • What facets of this technology development are especially hot?
  • What is on the cutting edge in my area of interest so I can be sure my focus is novel?
  • Who else at my or another university is doing research related to mine?
  • Are there applications for my research outside its current area?
  • Who is citing my research and what are they doing?
  • For my interdisciplinary proposal, which local university resources should I include?

VantagePoint – Part One - Introduction (Application overview, importing data, cleaning data)
Friday, January 29
1:00 – 4:00 PM

VantagePoint – Part Two - Analyzing data (Lists, Co-occurrence matrices, Maps)
Friday, Feb. 12
1:00 – 4:00 PM

Both sessions will use a dataset from the Web of Science database for “hands-on” experience. 

These sessions are open at all.  No pre-registration is needed.
