Planned dates:

  • TBA

Project assignment

  • A project should have the following requirements:
    • The application should contain several visual widgets, each providing insights on a selection of dimensions of the original data
    • It is possible to use state-of-the-art charts (bar charts, line charts, etc.) and libraries (plot.ly, nvd3, etc). It is a plus to implement a novel, original visualization to present the data in a creative, non-trivial way. (see examples on Vast Challenge 2008 developed in class). You can refer to visualization techniques already present in the literature, by adapting or implementing part of the solution.
    • Interactivity should be implemented, providing toolbars, selections, and filters for the data.
    • The visual widget should interact among them, realizing a set of linked displays to browse the data across multiple dimensions
    • The project should be submitted as a Git repository
    • The project report should be submitted 4 days before the discussion and should discuss at least the following points:
      • Description of data and presentation of the pattern or model to communicate
      • design choices: colors, interactions, shapes, transformations)
      • state-of-art: similar tools or interfaces for the same problem
      • Detailed description of the visualization with a description of the interaction
      • use case example for an analytical task

The student may choose one of the following project proposals. She/he can also propose an additional topic. In this case, a project proposal should be submitted for approval, containing a description of the data, a sketch of the possible visualization, and the motivation for the project.
