To commemorate the launch of a new iteration of the Places & Spaces exhibit currently on display in the Clark Library, Katy Börner presents on "Science Maps and Macroscopes." Join us onsite in the Clark Library or online via Zoom. (register above to receive a Zoom link).

The exhibit showcases innovative approaches to data visualization, critical for making sense of the large streams of data we confront on a daily basis. It provides examples of data visualizations that delight the eyes, engage the viewer, and impart vast amounts of information in a focused, accessible format. 

Dr. Katy Börner, professor of information science at Indiana University in Bloomington, uses visualization techniques to study the structure of scientific ontologies and the systems through which scientific collaboration is carried out. Börner is the curator of "Places and Spaces: Mapping Science," a comprehensive exhibit mapping ideas, organizations, and infrastructures in science and technology. This talk is in conjunction with the MIDAS Colloquium "Datatopia: The Future of Scientific Discovery Through a Data Lens."
