This edit-a-thon will emphasize open and ethical tools for working with data, including data wrangling, data analysis, and data visualization. ~Rstarry (talk)

Check out the list of Data Tools to be added, including:

  • Data Analysis
    • R programming language, RStudio, and the Tidyverse packages: R is a widely used open-source language with a robust, global community of users and contributors; RStudio is a free, open-source, integrated development environment (IDE) for working with R (note: there is also a commercial version of RStudio with additional features and customer support); the Tidyverse packages are used for data manipulation, exploration, and visualization
    • SciLab: free, open-source, desktop alternative to MATLAB for statistical analysis and data visualization
  • Data Visualization
    • RAWGraphs: free, open-source, browser tool for simple data visualization
    • TimelineJS: free, open-source, Knight Lab browser tool for creating interactive timelines (possible ethical issue: requires use of Google sheets)
    • Plotly Chart Studio: freemium browser-based tool for data visualization; also available as open-source graphing packages for use with Python, R, JavaScript, and MATLAB
    • Leaflet: open-source JavaScript package for creating interactive maps
