Application Report (to be done in pairs): (Proposal due February 15, 2011, Project due: March 2, 2011)
Use an existing software tool, such as Spotfire, Tableau, HCE, TimeSearcher, Treemap, or NodeXL to thoroughly explore a data set of your choice. Report what you found in the form of three headlines that highlight key features, insights, and significant findings. Present 3-6 informative displays (be sure to include legends, make labels readable, and write thoughtful captions) 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, describing positive aspects, problems you encountered, and suggestions for improvements.
Your proposal (due by email to email@example.com on Tuesday morning 10am Feb 15, 2011) 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. Your Application Report teammate should be different from your team mates for your Semester Project.
Reports are due with links to documents on the page (below) by class March 2, 2011.
