Next Week’s Assignments

  • Blog post (due next week): Complete another brief visualization exercise. It can, but doesn’t have to, be related to your midterm project. It can follow one of the tutorials on this site, or it can follow an external tutorial. You can even dive deeper into one of the remote sensing-related tools like Google Earth Engine or GDAL. It’s up to you!
  • Midterm (due in two weeks). A full project brief is here. If it will help you prepare, I can write a walk-through of one of my previous visualization projects (which includes a write-up) that is about the same scope as a midterm or final, depending on your prior technical experience. You can see the project files for this vis, called “Networks in Equity and Sustainability,” at Github.
