As you do this assignment, consider the historical data visualization developed by Charles Minard describing Napoleon’s army march toward and eventual retreat from Moscow (Found in this week’s presentation).
Use your imagination to develop your own data visualization that displays several dimensions with a single plot. (For example, color of data points can be used to categorize one dimension, while the size of the data point can represent a dimension related to magnitude.)
The assignment scoring is based on the originality of the display, the number of dimensions displayed, and readability.
Examples of this type of multidimensional visualization can be found at the following:
- Dundas (Sample Dashboards) (Links to an external site.)
- Tableau Gallery (Links to an external site.)
- Ted Talks – Data Visualization
