Most of the DUSPviz workshops and sessions are preserved as tutorials for reference, this page contains DUSPviz tutorials and workshop materials, including videos, handouts, and datasets. While we try to get all material online, certain material does not lend itself to posting. Contact DUSPviz if you have a suggestion for a tutorial or resource, or to request material that might not be online.
