Assignment #8: Final Project Ideas
For the remainder of the term, you will pick an
appropriately-sized visualization challenge that involves all (or
most) of the steps in visualization:
- Motivation & Problem Definition
- Visualization Design
- Data Collection
- Visualization Execution
- Analysis & Validation
- Visualization Revision
You are encouraged to work on the Final Project in a team of 2.
Your project should involve a significant amount of coding, but you
should leverage one or more visualization or graphics-related software
packages or toolkits.
For this week, focus on the high level motivation, purpose and
hypotheses, target audience, and data source for your project. What
are the expected challenges in creating this visualization? And what
are they key features of your visualization that you are most
interested in exploring?
Write 200-300 words capturing your ideas for your final project.
Teams should work together in preparing this initial proposal and all
future documents & presentations.
How to Submit
Post your final project ideas to LMS. Include attachments or links
with images and/or references (if you have them). If you're working
on a team, make one joint post, including the names of both teammates.
Please make this post before 6pm on Monday Oct 20th.
Read the posts of the other students, and give constructive feedback
to at least 3 other students/teams (by replying to their post on
LMS). Ask a question, give a suggestion, post a link to a related
paper or visualization, suggest a toolkit or additional source for
data, etc. (If you're working in a team, each teammate should make
their own feedback replies. You cannot give feedback to your own
team.) Please make your feedback replies before class on Tuesday Oct
21st at noon. Try to distribute your feedback so everyone gets at
least 3 replies.
