Want to Sing Out, Sing Out
The goal of this
project is for you to make use of what you have been
learning in this class in a project of your choosing (subject to Andy's
approval.) If you can make use of visualization in your own research
here at UIC that would be good, and I can supply a list of possible
projects if you want some other ideas:
- We have
temperature data from EVL for the past couple years on a room
by room basis. Combining this with outside temperature data and
knowledge about when various rooms are active may be interesting.
- You could
collect and visualize cell-phone strength for various carriers around
- We have an eye
tracking system at EVL so you could show a known piece
of content (e.g. a commercial or a web page) to a group of people and
track and then
visualize where their attention is focused.
- There is
information on Illinois well water that might be useful to
produce some underground maps at
create a set of web pages that describe your work on the project. This
all of which
should have plenty of screenshots with meaningful captions.
how to install your app starting from "I have a web browser on my
computer." You should provide links and clear instructions on
everything needed to get your application running. You should also
provide links to your well documented souce code on this page.
- 1 page on
the data you used including where you got it, what you did to it.
- 1 page on
how to use your application and the things you can do with it.
- 1 page on
what interesting things you found using your application.
You should also create a 2-3 minute video showing the use of your
application including narration with decent audio quality and that
video should be linked to your main project web page.
I will be linking your web page to the course notes
so please send me a 320 x 240 jpg photo of your visualization for the

be very helpful later on in helping you build up a portfolio of your
work when you start looking for a job.
will bring his / her visualization to class to present it and describe
its features to the rest of the
class. This allows everyone to see a variety of solutions to the
problem, and a variety of implementations.
