  • UVa Licensed SPSS on Ivy Windows VM

    SPSS Overview SPSS (or Statistical Package for Social Sciences), was initially developed as a social survey project but later on has grown to encompass statistical applications in almost all disciplines. Different industries use SPSS for their data analysis work. Its features include database management, reporting, graphing, among many others. SPSS Usage SPSS is available only on the Windows VM at the moment. To run SPSS go to: Start Menu > All Programs > IBM SPSS Statistics Licensing We have a limited number of SPSS licenses available, which are provided on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • UVa Licensed IDL on Ivy Linux VMs

    IDL Overview IDL, short for Interactive Data Language, is an interactive shell based data analysis programming language. Used vastly in medical imaging, it can quickly create visualizations and graphs of large data sets in a few easy steps due to its vector nature. FORTRAN users would be familiar with the IDL syntax. IDL is not to be confused with Java IDL or Microsoft IDL. Basic IDL Usage To start IDL, open a terminal window and type idl.

  • Data Analysis

    School of Medicine Research Computing can help with accessing, preparing, visualizing and analyzing data. We can assist you by implementing your analysis strategy in an appropriate computing language, including R, Python and Matlab. We will work with you to prepare scripts that are are reproducible, efficient and flexible. Manipulation Data analysis generally involves a significant effort to transform, aggregate, subset or otherwise prepare a dataset. That could include dealing with missing values as well as merging or joining multiple datasets.
