Victoria University of Wellington is hosting the Final Presentations of Summer for eResearch 2012/2013. Each of the students will talk about their work. The day will involve students, mentors and New Zealand's eresearch leaders discussing each of the projects' science goals, outcomes and wider implications.
The day will be split into two main sessions. The bulk of the day will be devoted to providing the students discuss their work. The afternoon will include lots of time to discuss the topics in depth. We will be having some unconference sessions, where participants decide upon the topics discussed. Each session will also include collaborative notetaking. For each of the sessions, a Google Doc has been created that all of the attendees can participate in creating.
HaithiTrust Research Pilot: Analysing the New Zealand Corpus
The HathiTrust Digital Library provides programmatic access to millions of digital books and other material from 60 partners, including the Internet Archive and Google. The project aims to analyse the corpus to assess the nature, range, and quality of its New Zealand content.
This project involves developing a tablet application for audio geotagging, enabling speakers to indicate where they are speaking about in a machine-readable manner. The work will aim towards building a system to capture time-stamped audio and touchscreen map interactions. The tool has wide applicability, with foreseeable applications in the library and information professions, health professionals working with Alzheimer patients, interviews with victims of crime and scientists recording fieldwork.
Moving NZSSDS to an open source architecture
The New Zealand Social Science Data Service (NZSSDS) is derived from the Australian Data Archive (ADA) and NESSTAR, a proprietary middleware. The aim of the project is to move this system to a new open-source architecture, the Dataverse environment developed at Harvard.
Network Science for Non-Scientists: simple visualisation for complex network structures
This project aims to produce an exploratory interface which would allow to allow end-users to explore networks and would provide a far richer experience than static, one-off network visualisations which are currently available.
Selection tools for genomics researchers – a Galaxy of fun
The major goal of this project is to put in place a diverse collection of existing industry-standard software tools for the detection of “signatures of selection” in genomic data, using the web-based Galaxy software as a common platform for service delivery.
Sensor Observation Service
The goal of this project is to establish a Sensor Observation Service serving time-series data from the New Zealand National Climate Database providing online access to public climate data.
