Week 5

Project 1 Presentations

We are going to spend two weeks looking at various ways that people visualized the data from Project 1.

There are always multiple ways to solve a visualization problem and this lets you see several alternatives that you may not have thought of, or may have thought of but couldn't figure out how to implement. As you look at the interactive visualizations and listen to the presentations compare the presenter's solution to yours. What did you do better? What did that person do better? How would you improve your solution based on what you are seeing?

After each day's talks you should update your project 1 web page with a list of the things you would improve in your project based on what you saw in the presentations that day. This list should be on a separate web page, in an obvious location so I can find it easily.

This is also a good opportunity to find partners for the 2nd and 3rd projects.

Each person will have 5 minutes (and 5 minutes only) to present their solution. Please rehearse your talk so you will be able to say everything you want to say in that time. Please make sure your project web pages are available online before class, and make sure that Andy has time to put your screenshot up before class so everyone can get an idea of all the solutions when we meet.

The screenshots and web links will appear on the Talks page.

You should try to form your 4 person teams for project 2 by the end of this week and start working on your project, though you have until the end of next week to do so.
