Advanced Media Workshop – This Friday!

Advanced Media

Friday, April 14, 2017
12:00pm – 1:30pm
Scholars’ Commons IQ-Wall (E157H)

PRESENTED BY CHRIS ELLER

IU has a broad history of working with a variety of media. In this session, we’ll look at two cutting-edge technologies: 360 and stereoscopic media. We’re seeing new 360 images and videos on our mobile phones and in virtual reality devices on a daily basis. While capturing and processing stereoscopic media is certainly not a new concept, the accessibility of stereoscopic 3D cameras and playback mechanisms, likely including your personal TV, has brought new attention to this wonderful form of expression. Join us in this session for a look at the challenges and opportunities afforded by these forms of advanced media and learn how you can create richer experiences.

Scholars’ Commons IQ-Wall (E157H)

PRESENTED BY DAVID KLOSTER

Network graphs are amazingly useful to for visualizing connections between interdependent items. Using both pen and paper and Cytoscape, this session will introduce the concept of network graphs, step through the process of building an analog network, and then explain how to use Cytoscape to make your network digital.

Prerequisites: Install Cytoscape from:

Photogrammetry Workshop!

3D Photogrammetry

Friday, March 31, 2017

12:00pm – 1:30pm

Scholars’ Commons IQ-Wall (E157H)

PRESENTED BY TASSIE GNIADY

In this session we will explore photogrammetry as it relates to the creation of 3D models of real world objects. Using many pictures taken from all around an object, photogrammetry software stitches them into a 3D surface. This introductory workshop will introduce the basics of good photography used in photogrammetric capture and stitching.

Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon for Women’s History Month

Thanks for coming!

First, request an account!

Resources are your best friend. I recommend LexusNexus, and Google Books as places to start.

If you are looking for an article that needs help, why not try one of these?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beyonc%C3%A9 (no mention of cultural issues surrounding Lemonade video)
You may notice that the last three entries are all from the beginning of the alphabet–I went through the table of contents of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls and then checked their Wikipedia pages to see if they were incomplete. You can go further into the alphabet.

3D Workshop – This Friday

3D Object
Acquisition & Printing

Friday, March 24, 2017

12:00pm – 1:30pm

Scholars’ Commons IQ-Wall (E157H)

PRESENTED BY JEFF ROGERS

3D printing is one of the hottest sectors in technology. It enables users to fabricate personal and scientific objects like never before. But before fabricating, users must create a 3D model built digitally using 3D CAD or acquired from the real world using 3D scanning. The UITS Advanced Visualization Lab has been working with 3D models and supporting advanced research in this area for more than a decade – well before 3D printers were mainstream. This session will detail the equipment and workflows available to the IU community to enable 3D scanning and printing.

12:00pm – 1:30pm

Scholars’ Commons IQ-Wall (E157H)

PRESENTED BY TASSIE GNIADY

This session will focus on using the twittR package for R to scrape tweets. Then we will create a wordcloud of most commonly used terms and a sentiment graph mining opinions of the tweets.

Prerequisites: A Karst account which may be set up following these steps: https://kb.iu.edu/d/achr. If you want to do your own twitter searches, set up OAuth by following this tutorial: http://www.r-bloggers.com/setting-up-the-twitter-r-package-for-text-analytics/.

Scholars’ Commons IQ-Wall (E157H)

PRESENTED BY DAVID REAGAN

Interactive multi-touch devices and applications are nearly ubiquitous. We have mobile phones and routinely use touch-enabled digital sign, kiosks and web pages. In this session, we will discuss the open and freely available software that has enabled dozens of touch-enabled visualization projects and interactive exhibits here at IU.
