Hands-on Data Documentation and Metadata Creation

A critical part of making data useable and shareable is to ensure they can be understood and interpreted by others. This requires clear and detailed data description, annotation and contextual information. Data documentation is a vital part of managing your research data that needs to be done throughout the project, not just at the end. Come learn and explore tools like Colectica, Nesstar, Morpho, and iPhoto that will help you document your data while you collect and analyze it. Bring your laptops and your data sets.
