CT Landmarks project final slides and transferring of ownership

Posted on

Laura will edit the first and last slides later this week to add her presentation part to it.

Assignment 10B: Write a transfer and training plan to migrate your dataviz and ALL source files to your partner.

  • Which files need to be transferred? How are they labeled? Who owns or has access to them?

The journal files scanned(in PDF format) were all in Community Partner’s local hard drive and their official Google Drive, labeled in their labelling format. The pictures of artifacts I took were not in their system yet, and I will transfer all the pictures to our shared Google Drive(owned by CT Landmarks) before finals.

  • What info and training does the partner need to maintain or update the dataviz? Spell out the steps in your post, and refer to DataVizForAll if needed.
