Select a data set you want to work with from the ones listed in the. Once you have selected the data set, decide on a point you want to make using that data. Then submit the following:
A brief description of your data set
A full citation for the data set (any style)

This exercise asks you to learn to use a tool that creates data visualizations. You will familiarize yourself with the tools basic functions and create a tutorial document (using screenshots or video) that you can share with your peers. The goal is to practice using visualization creation applications, and to teach each other so that everyone can choose one that works for them.You can select any application you wish that this includes ones with which you already are familiar. Or you can choose from the following list:
Once you have selected your application/tool, go learn how to use it. As you do, take screenshots or make a video describing the following functions:
Registering (or getting access)/cost/making a profile
Selecting a format/template
Making the visualizations
Exporting/saving the visualization for use in other documents
This exercise asks you to analyze a quantitative visual to develop your ability to think critically about the visuals youre designing for your project.
Look on the internet to find a data visualization to analyze that you find interesting. The visual should represent quantitative (numerical/statistical) data. The visual can be one you think is good or one you think has problems. Once youve found one youd like to work with, analyze the visual by answering the following questions:
What type of visual is it?
Is the visual appropriate for the type of data? Why do you think so?
What is the purpose of the visual and who is the audience? How do you know? What specific elements of the visual led you to your conclusion?
Is the ? Distracting? Does the the visual more or less effective? Why?
Does the design of the visual contribute to or detract from the clarity and accuracy of the visual? What specific elements support your conclusion?
This exercises asks to you collect data and create a data visualization that communicates that data graphically.
STEP 1 – COLLECT DATA
At home, or wherever you are working, collect a set of quantitative (numerical) data. Consider various types of data, for example:
How long does it take to get to a specific floor in the elevator vs. climbing the stairs based on multiple tries?
What’s the ratio of books to other stuff on your shelves?
How much time do ducks spend foraging vs. just wandering around?
Think about the various processes that take time or require resources (e.g., how many almonds you eat in an hour, or the average time it takes to drink a bubbly water). Think about the items you have around you and what they are used for (e.g., what apps do you check on your phone in an hour). Quantitative data is all around you–every time you do something, check something, or observe something, you are generating data. And so are the things around you–e.g., stoplights, phones, dogs, and squirrels. Select an item or items around you (including yourself) and collect the data it generates.
STEP 2 – CREATE A VISUALIZATION
Once you have your data, draw a data visualization that represents your data. To pick the type of data visualization, go back to the Design chapter you read and review the visualization types. You can use any medium you want to create your visualization–pens, crayons, markers, or, if you are already familiar with , use an app likeor Excel.
STEP 3 – SHARE YOUR VISUALIZATION AND COMMENT
If you draw your visualization, you can submit a picture taken with your phone. Include your name in the title. When you share your visualization, answer the following questions about it, along with the image:
What does the data visualization show?
Why did you pick that visualization format?
