Data Visualization User Groups

  • AIRA offers data visualization user groups to encourage peer-to-peer relationships between jurisdictions and create a community in which members can share their successes and challenges. Learn more about the two data visualization user groups below:

IIS Data Analyst Collaborative (IDAC)

  • Held on the third Thursday of every other month, from 12 p.m. ET.
  • Designed to increase community sharing and learning around IIS data analyst topics.
  • Participants will engage in guided discussion on topics relevant to IIS data analysts, present challenges and successes, ask questions of the community and peers, and more.
  • New and seasoned IIS data analysts are welcome!

IIS Data Analyst Forum (IDAF)

  • Designed to increase community engagement and conversation in real time.
  • Post burning questions, answer peers' questions, and more!
  • You can request access to the IDAF by emailing “AIRA IDAF” to [email protected].

IIS Data Analyst Network (IDAN)

  • IDAN is a program in which AIRA pairs IIS data analysts across the community to provide professional peer support.
  • IIS data analysts will be paired with peers who have complementary skills to broaden connections in the IIS community.
  • AIRA will hold quarterly virtual meet-ups for IDAN participants. Between meetings, you will receive topics and prompts to facilitate you connecting with your match. 
  • To sign up for future IDAN gatherings and to be paired with a peer, fill out this interest form. Select “IIS Data Analyst Network” and any other interests under “What activity are you interested in learning more about?"

Code Library (coming soon)

  • The code library is an electronic storage space where relevant, non-proprietary code and scripts can be shared.
  • The intent is to create a shared space where other IIS data analysts can copy and edit coding for their own projects.

Technical Assistance

  • Technical assistance includes support with SAS coding, Tableau dashboard development, and data analysis. Technical assistance can also include help with jurisdiction-specific data quality plans, customized programmatic recommendations, and more.

  • AIRA has policies and infrastructure in place to accept and analyze data to meet your needs. Please reach out with your requests. See the How to Request IIS Data Analyst Support below.
  • If you are stuck on a data set or need some visualization support, don’t hesitate to reach out to [email protected]  or through our TA request form to attend Data Visualization Office Hours.
