On September 13th from 4:00 pm to 5:00pm EDT, the Environmental Impact Data Collaborative (EIDC) is hosting an in-person info session about the data collaborative and how students can benefit from these resources for their thesis research endeavors and more.
The EIDC platform provides access to hundreds of environmental data sets with billions of rows of data in a way that makes it easy for students to locate, transform, merge, visualize and analyze data. The collection of cleaned and documented and packaged datasets will help students save precious research time, inform them of the latest data resources in the fields of environmental justice and climate issues, and equip them with a plethora of tools and inspirations to empower their research projects.
About the Environmental Impact Data Collaborative (EIDC): The EIDC enables community groups, policymakers and researchers to use data to learn, communicate and advocate on important environmental issues. We gather data, code and research literature into a single environment, making it easy for users to discover, transform, link, visualize and analyze data in ways that support their efforts to make environmental policy more effective and just.
