Project Deliverables

As a reminder, here are the deliverables for the visualization project, which are all due on May 6th:

  • Writeup, including but not limited to:
    • Competitive analysis
    • Sketches
    • Iteration artifacts
    • Rationale for design decisions

Project Showcase

As announced earlier in the semester you will have the opportunity to show off your visualization project at the Information Visualization Showcase. The showcase is mandatory for all teams. It will be during regular class time (5-8PM) on May 8. Feel free to invite guests, as the presentations are open for the public.

Since there are 14 projects, we will have to keep an eye on time. You have 10 minutes to present plus 2 minutes for Q&A. Use the time to introduce your project, show iteration artifacts and demo the visualization. If you are using slides, send me a PDF along with your other deliverables.

Please also send me as soon as possible

  • 1 paragraph describing your project
  • Your project title/name
