So it has been a long while since I last posted here. During that period of time, I’ve redone my website (which I want to redo again), gone through most of my senior year at RIT, and have started my search for a job after graduation.
As I’m currently hanging out in Sunlight Labs the day before TransparencyCamp, I thought it would be the perfect time to post my independent study proposal. The below proposal was fully approved a few months ago and has been in the works since then. I was be presenting a decent chuck of what I have learned a produced tomorrow. After this post, I will be sure to post the presentation.
Independent Study Proposal on D3
If I have extra time after the first three visualizations, I would like to try to accomplish a way to visualize a timeline in history. This has been an interest of mine as I have gone through a number of US history classes for my political science major. From what I can tell, there are only a few decent visualizations on certain time periods within the country.
Web pages would be created in order to host all of these visualizations and the essays on the relevance to the topics. The web pages would also include a simple tutorial on each use of the D3 library for future research.
This study will be the accumulation of all my skills that I have been building up and would be the perfect finish to my career at RIT.
