Eric Hannell, a data visualization consultant at Tableau, will talk about the Global Database of Events, Language, and Tone (GDELT) Project. Through this 400+ million row "Global Database of Society" we can watch world events unfold, see the raise and fall of global powers and understand how the world has changed in the last several decades. There are several ways of accessing the data, and for this talk we will use the GDELT Event Database that Google updates daily and makes available through BigQuery.
