Application Report (to be done in pairs): (due: 2/27/2007)

Use an existing software tool, such as Spotfire, HCE, TimeSearcher, or Treemap to thoroughly explore a data set of your choice. Report what you found in the form of three headlines that highlight key features and significant findings. Present 3-6 informative displays and write 500-1000 words explaining what you have found. Include your name, email address, date, and affiliation. Please describe the data sets you use, indicating number of items and attributes, as well as the source and URL. Critique the tools you used, making suggestions for improvements.

Your proposal should give a title, the names/emails of the two team members, what software you plan to use, and a few sentences describing the data you will use, plus its source.
