Welcome to the Data Exploration Lab

In the Data Exploration Lab (DXL) we explore the intersection between data, analysis, visualization and computational science.

This document is designed to be a reference document for lab members as well as part of an “onboarding” process when folks join the lab. It is a living document, and lab members are encouraged to submit pull requests if they wish to update it.
