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
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
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
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.
