2014-15 Term 1 Year 3 Project 3 – Data Vizualisation

Sam Setenyi

Data is everything and everywhere. How do we make sense of such ‘big data’? This project aims to equip students with the ability to visually encode data using procedural methods, exploring different graphing ‘types’, spacial mapping, and the use of scale, colour, and position to create meaningful, interpretative realisations of multi-­dimensional information. Students are expected to create a series of experimental 2D data visualisations using Processing to interpret and visualise data sets prepared using Google Docs/Excel.
