Description

 The task is to access, clean, configure, and standardize a dataset for utility, then create a relevant and scientifically valid data visualization to communicate science. 

This is designed as part of a larger group research project, where a research team works together on a larger question and a group infographic; for the infographic each student identifies a specific data resource to investigate. This could be modified for stand alone individual assignment.

Students completing this series of exercises can:

  • Investigate existing data resources
  • Access appropriate data resources
  • Clean, configure and standardize a dataset
  • Critically evaluate information derived from a dataset
  • Analyze and visualize data for effective communication of science
