This page provides webinars and resources related to analyzing GLOBE data.
This webinar on Analyzing GLOBE Data was hosted by Richard Wagner, Metro State University. Wagner discusses data visualizations and shares student examples from the SRS and IVSS.
Watch Rich Wagner's webinar on youtube.
This webinar features two presenters and topics. In the first half, Roller from the Community Support Team, demonstrates how to access GLOBE data using the new data access tool. He highlights downloading GLOBE data as various file types for use in spreadsheet and visualization software. During the second half, Jackie Wilson from the Hubbard Brook Research Foundation describes the basic types of graphs, good graphing basics, using the research question as your guide in deciding what graph to make and building these visualization skills in students.
