CS 251: Assignment #9

Final Project

Due May 10, 2013

The final project is to develop novel visualizations and undertake an analysis of a selected data set. You can customize your code, as needed.


  1. Create any visualizations you identified in your final project design. Test them with people outside your group and, ideally, with the provider of the data set.
  2. Create any analyses you identified in your final project design. Give the data set provider a preview of the analyses and adjust the process, as necessary.
  3. Create a wiki writeup of your visualizations and analyses. This will be a more extensive writeup than any of the individual projects. The writeup needs to include the following sections.

    • An abstract of no more than 500 words that describes the data set and your work with it.
    • A problem statement, clearly describing the data set, its source, and the main problems for which you are developing data analyses and visualizations.
    • A methods section describing the visualization and analysis tools/methods you used.
    • A results section, showing the visualizations and analysis results.
    • A summary/conclusion section that highlights the important results and concludes the writeup.


No formal extensions for the final project.
