Data Visualization and GIS

Data visualization or information visualization is a very broad term used to describe any visual representation of information. This can be anything from charts and graphs, to sketches and diagrams, to posters and presentations. Anything that help communicate information visually. Here at Snell, we usually help people with things like creating dashboards, maps, and tables of data.

NIH Public Access Policy

"To advance science and improve human health, NIH makes the peer-reviewed articles it funds publicly available on PubMed Central. The NIH public access policy requires scientists to submit final peer-reviewed journal manuscripts that arise from NIH funds to PubMed Central immediately upon acceptance for publication."

Learn more about how to comply with the NIH Public Access Policy.
