Graphs to visualize data in ecology: the pilot cases IndexMEED are launched!

In May, the IndexMEED consortium organized its first “Data Curation” workshops, aimed at preparing the datasets of voluntary participants for the construction of graphs. Organized at the CESAB (Aix-en-Provence) and the ISCC (Paris), the focus was on data formatting based on categories of values and descriptors respecting simple but essential rules for the correct visualization of the data. The participants, supervised by experts of this field, have worked on their own datasets. Overall, ten pilot cases are being developed within the framework of the consortium. The next step will be marked by the workshops “Visualization of data in the form of graphs”. The results will be presented at the national restitution seminar which will take place from 15 to 17 November 2017 in Paris.
