11:00am - 1:00pm
Research Library 11630F - RC Classroom
Advanced Research Workshop

Visualizing historical data presents some challenges, but Tableau Desktop, free to students, has features that work wonders!  We'll focus on Los Angeles around 1913. 

  • Starting with a map of LA from the library's historical map collection, we'll swap out the (modern) base-map with one from our collection! 
  • Then, we'll set about showing how we've prepared a sample dataset based on an LA-based architect's papers from Special Collections. 
  • Finally, we'll pull in census data set from our licensed database: IPUMs.  

Historical data never looked this good!
