Application Projects

Application Report (to be done in pairs): (Proposal due by email to ben@cs.umd.edu September 26, 2013 Thursday noon, Project due as link to document below: October 11, 2013 Friday 9am)

Use an existing software tool, such as Spotfire, Tableau, QlikView, HCE, TimeSearcher, Treemap, EventFlow, 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. At least one of your informative displays should demonstrate coordinated windows or trellised view. 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 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.
