Final Project Evaluation

Original assignment:

The final project is an opportunity for you to create a visualization related to a topic that you find interesting. Ideally, it will serve as a portfolio piece that you can present to future employers. The project is very broadly defined: you will choose a topic, locate data related to that topic, and clean and present the data in a website using d3. Final projects must include at least two different views of a dataset, and may incorporate any of the graphical forms that we encounter in class (bar, line or area charts, scatterplots, maps, network diagrams, etc). Animation, annotation and interactivity that support graph function are encouraged. You will work throughout the semester to identify data, rough out concepts, and create a final visualization that presents your data in a clear and interesting form.
