Visualizing global discussions with Exasol, Tableau and the Twitter API

Presented by

Kevin Lynch, the Information Lab Ireland; Gayan Peiris, UN SDG Action Campaign; Eva Murray, Exasol

About this talk

Following the data collection and transformation processes described in the previous webinar, phase 2 of our project was to visualize the data around the global Twitter discussions surrounding the UN General Assembly. Kevin Lynch from the Information Lab Ireland developed a comprehensive dashboard to bring the data to life and highlight the demographics of users as well as the topics discussed by them during and after the event. Join us for a walkthrough of the process, the connections to the data, the analysis and visualization approach and a demo of the dashboard. Kevin Lynch will present his work in Tableau and will be joined by Gayan Peiris, Digital Strategist at the UN SDG Action Campaign, who will share how the outputs are being used by his team and beyond.
