Data Literacy 101
Content Level: Fundamental
Information Technology Division
Co-Sponsors: Military Libraries Division, Taxonomy Division
Data literacy has become a fundamental skill as the volume, variety, and velocity at which data are being created grows rapidly and intersects more with our daily lives. No longer reserved for data scientists, the democratization of data means that more people have access to data with the power to analyze, create, and shape the future using tools that are user friendly and often free. The world today requires librarians to embrace a different approach to data and rethinking what we choose to collect and how we use data to make decisions. This session is designed with the goal of helping attendees understand the basics of data literacy – considering approaches to understanding, using, and communicating with data more effectively."

Photo Interpretation and Remote Sensing: What You Need to Know!
Content Level: Intermediate
Co-Sponsor: Government Information Division
“In 1960, Robert N. Colwell published The Manual of Photographic Interpretation (Washington, D.C., American Society of Photogrammetry). His frequently quoted definition of this technique is ‘the act of examining photographic images for the purpose of identifying objects and judging their significance.’ Key elements of photo interpretation are: Size, shape, shadow, tone/color, texture, pattern, and association /surrounding; these elements are routinely referenced when interpreting an aerial photo or analyzing a photo-like image. Visual interpretation is used in many fields, including engineering, hydrology, geography, archaeology, geology, agronomy, and climate science. Expand your knowledge of the science of photo interpretation and remote sensing in this expert-led intermediate class.”
