Leaving a legacy using good data management 

Angie Reed, Victoria Flowers and Cynthia Annett

9:00-10:30 am Weds 2/28

Objective: This session will guide attendees through creating data management goals that consider project workflows and data “end-products” that allow their data to be used as far into the future as possible. Best practices for data management activities will be shared, and considerations for data stewardship and sovereignty will be discussed during this interactive discussion and work session. Everyone will have an opportunity at the beginning to share the data management struggles they face, how they are trying to resolve them and what would help them better do so.  Attendees will  develop a summary of their current data management activities and a process for putting this into an action plan.

Objective: This session will help attendees link data management considerations with understanding how to analyze and interpret data, including working with different types of data, and some of the various tools and software that are available.  We will discuss the basic statistics needed for understanding and assessing data quality, as well as how to interpret data in charts or other visualization tools. Everyone will have an opportunity at the beginning to share the data analysis struggles they face, how they are trying to resolve them and what would help them better do so.  Attendees will be able to create simple summary visuals or statistics on their own data or relevant environmental examples.
