Assignment 1 Prompt: In this task, you will select a data set from Google Public Data and create two different visual representations of the data set you selected. Go to Google Public Data and choose a data set. Include the following critical elements: Visual Representations (2) o Using the available data and tools, create the plots, graphs, etc., for each audience that match the needs of the audiences. Identify two different types of audiences. Using the selected data set, create two visualizations—one for each identified audience. Audience Needs o Provide a written description of the data being represented and descriptions of the audience for each visualization, and explain the audience strengths and weaknesses for each of the two data visualization methods. Specifically, contrast the needs and sophistication of the target audiences, addressing the following questions: Will the overall message change for each audience? How familiar will each audience be with the issue at hand and with the terminology? How will things such as educational levels, age levels, primary language, cultural diversity, and other factors vary among your target audiences? Data Visualization Methods o Provide a written explanation of why each data visualization method you chose is appropriate for each audience. Explain the strengths and weaknesses of the two data visualization methods used as it relates to the selected audience Assignment 2 Prompt: Using the Google Public Data data set and two audience-specific visualizations created in Module One, adjust the x axis, y axis, and/or visualization style to illustrate changes in context and variability. Write a 2- to 3-paragraph response analyzing how the changes impact the variability and context compared to your Module One visualizations. Go to Public Data and access the Module One data set. Include the following critical elements: Visualizations o Using the available data and tools, modify the original Module One plots, graphs, etc., for each identified audience: Change the x axis, y axis, and/or visual style of each visual to change context and variability. Variability, Uncertainty, and Context o Compare the Module One visual to the changed visual, and include how each of the visuals’ messages have changed overall. Include discussion of how the variability, uncertainty, or context changed the information communicated from the Module One visual to the new visual. Data Visualization Methods o Provide an explanation of how each change improved or distorted the information for each audience. Explain the importance of appropriate use of variability, uncertainty, or context in visualizations.
