Data Project Meet Up

http://www.meetup.com/WomenDataScientistsDC/events/229496026/

Women Data Scientists DC  Sunday April 3rd 1pm-4pm

Laptops are required for this meetup!!!!!

The purpose of this workshop is to help members put a(nother) Data Science project on their resume.

You are welcome to come with your own data to work with, but we will have two different data sets provided by OCTO:

Moving Violations: (4,103,766 total records) ) Raw: [masked] (less 2013)- 6yrs worth of data; layers are broken out by Month/Year

This information comes courtesy of DPW from partner agencies MPD, DPW and DDOT. Data is in tabular form and has been geocoded.

Vehicular Crash Data: (106,908 total records)

This information comes courtesy of MPD via DDOT crash data section (100k + GIS records) .  DDOT received some assistance in the geocoding efforts from the University of Colorado. (Attributes like YEAR/DAY OF WEEK/ TYPE / ROAD SURFACE / FATALITIES / CONDITIONS OF WEATHER, TRAFFIC

We will brainstorm some analysis ideas for these and other datasets, both as a large group and in smaller groups.  I will walk around and help with R programming.

Caveat: You are not meant to finish this project at this meetup!  This is simply to give you a head start with some others also working on a data project.

NOVA Labs Ladies Night Out

  • Saturday, April 2, 2016
    6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
  • 1916 Issac Newton Sq West, Reston, VA (map)

  • Classrooms A & B
  • Our first women’s Makers mixer! Join your fellow females with passions for IT, crafts, woodworking, electronics, drones, 3D printing and/or Making of all sorts. Experts or those just learning; meet, collaborate, network. Come and find out what are women doing with the cool tools at the lab?

    Potluck. Bring a dish (homemade or store bought). We’ll provide water, wine, beer, wine glasses, and cups.

    I’m a Maker and a geek, so we are going to make something and learn something in betwixt the chatting and the mixing.

    Agenda:

    -> Keynote speaker: Marybeth Haneline, VP of Nova Labs – She’ll speak about achieving gender equity in the competitive robotics program for youth at Nova Labs.  This robotics season our FIRST Lego League program reached gender equity. This shift didn’t occur on it’s own.  We’ll take a look at the work behind the scenes and lessons learned.

    -> Speaker: DeShawn Robinson-Chew, CEO of SheEO™, LLC – She’ll share her company’s philosopy and goal of exposing motivated young ladies to business, entrepreneurship, finances and goal-setting to prepare them to be self-reliant, successful, and happy in their careers and lives.

    -> Intro to basic electronics

    -> Flash Talks – 5 minutes of sharing what you’re making.

    -> Collaboration project ideas discussion (I’ll pitch a few, you do too).

    I’ll be coming around during the event to recruit people to do Flash Talks. It’s easy, just share what you are making. Very informal. Sharing and collaborating is a HUGE reason the maker movement works.

    This is an opportunity to meet the women and young ladies who are here at the lab. Come ask or answer questions. Let’s hear how you are doing and what you are Making. Have you met some of the amazing women around the lab? Wow! Women are making 3D printers, in the wood shop, at the laser cutter, on the Rhino teams…  This event is not meant to separate based on gender. It’s just one of many types of opportunities to meet like-minded people with similar personal styles and passions. Come meet and network into the Nova Labs community.

Communicating with Maps

Thursday, August 20 | 6:00 – 9:00 PM | Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Congress uses dynamic maps as a way to effectively communicate with the public. At this Meetup, Congressional Staff will show you how they use GIS to present policy initiatives, information about their constituents’ states or districts, and public engagements.

You’ll walk away with new ideas on how your organization can improve public outreach with easy-to-create online maps.

LOCATION:
1776
1133 15th St NW, 12th floor
Washington, D.C. 20005

SCHEDULE:

6:00 – 6:30: Registration & Networking Reception

6:30 – 6:50: Online Communicating with Maps
Maps can be used as an effective messaging tool. Whether it’s telling a story, highlighting a policy objective, or communicating information to constituents, mapping should be part of every press shop’s toolkit. Rebecca discusses how mapping has been used in Senator Wyden’s office and its role in their online communications.

6:50 – 7:10: GIS Story Map for Chairman McCaul’s Border Security Blueprint
This session will dive into a GIS Story Map that was created as a visual aid for Homeland Security Committee Chairman, Michael McCaul’s, Blueprint for Border Security. The map highlighted the drug and migrant smuggling threats along the Southwest border, the level of threats by sector, and what resources were needed to achieve security in each sector. It was a powerful tool to show report and plan information visually and interactively.

7:10 – 7:30: Maps in Congress

7:30 – 9:00: Networking Reception

GIS to the Rescue Meetup this Thursday

http://www.meetup.com/Esri-DC-Meet-Ups/events/216843922/

Last DC Meet Up of the Year!

  • Thursday, November 13, 2014
  • 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM
  • District Architecture Center

    421 7th St NW , Washington, DC (map)

    38.895439-77.021896
  • Don’t miss the last chance this year to meet with your fellow geospatial technology enthusiasts. We’ll discuss how organizations are using geospatial technology to address the needs of vulnerable populations during emergencies and crises.

    Getting the right resources to the right people at right time requires coordination and an understanding of the people at the heart of the situation. With maps, organizations determine how and where they should provide food, shelter, transportation, and medical and emotional support. Maps paint a clear picture of important factors like language spoken and access to transportation so responders know how to effectively serve the public.

    Join us to learn how geospatial technology equips responders with the information they need to target and assist vulnerable people during an emergency.

    Schedule:

    5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.   

    Registration and Networking

    6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
