Due Sunday, November 29th at noon. Worth 3 points. Blog responses should be at least 300 words; they should be written in a semi-formal scholarly style (with complete thoughts and correct spelling, grammar, and syntax). Partial responses (including responses that fail to meet the minimum word length or clearly fail to answer the prompt) will receive partial credit. Late posts will not be accepted.
The final project assignment requires that you use at least two visualizations that help you support your argument. In this week’s blog post, I’d like you to think about the types of visualizations you plan to use in your final projects. In at least 300 words, please discuss your approach to using visualizations for your project. Describe the visualizations you’re planning to use, how you plan to create them, and what your expect to show using these. How are you going to approach getting data to feed these visualizations? What have you done so far? What work do you have yet to complete?
