BoF: Earth in Galaxy: handling georeferenced data in Galaxy

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Things tend to happen at a particular place. 🗺🌏🌌 Join this BoF to discuss ways in which Galaxy can, could, or should help accessing, analyzing, and visualizing geographically referenced data, e.g. in climate research, ecology and biodiversity, epidemiology and public health, social sciences, engineering, or any other domains. This BoF will be primarily about meeting each other🤝🏽🤗, some brainstorming, and inspiration.

Party time for the EMEA time zones 🥳 And a dot after the GCC⏺ BYOB (bring-your-own-beverage): Bring a favorite drink or snack! 🍹🥗 (or a pillow). Hopefully with some fresh Friday-morning wind from the Pacific🌊 And definitely an option for dancing the night away all the way into the CollaborationFest 💃🏽🐙👩🏽‍💻👾

>> Note: We ran an alternative, slightly more EMEA&Asia-friendly clone of this BoF, on Friday 9 Jul 14:00 UTC during the CollaborationFest. <<
