You can also do a project based on your own research interests,
or use one of the prior years viz contest datasets if you find
one that is more interesting.
The proposal is due on
March 27th. It should be a publicly available web page with
details on I-VI, and you should email the location to andy so he
can put it on this page.
The project itself is due on April 27th. At that time you should
convert your proposal into another publicly available web page
that details the results of your work in those 6 categories,
including screen shots and videos where appropriate. Please also
send me a small representative screen capture of your
visualization that I can add to this page.
The week of April 27th each group (and each person) will talk
about their project in class. More details on the presentation
forthcoming after we know how many projects there will be.
