Dr. Danita Brandt Presents the latest "Cool Tool" for Geoscience
- Apr 21, 2017
Come see the latest in the Geoscientist's tool kit. Dr. Danita Brandt presents "Cool Tool: Charting the Geosciences via Google Books Ngram Viewer" Bibliographic trends in word choice can be used to chart the evolution of a discipline, from the first recorded use of its name, through fluctuations in the use of the name, to its current standing, as measured by bibliographic frequency. Ngram Viewer, a tool developed by a team at Google, puts this data at our fingertips. Bring your laptop and play along! Join us on April 21, 2017 from 12:30 to 1:30 in Room 204, Natural Science Building, on the East Lansing campus.
