Assignment for Next Week

  1. Finish one of today’s visualization exercises or start your own. Some ideas:
    • Visualize the provided MindRider data with 3D buildings.
    • VIsualize 3D buildings with another point-based dataset from NYC Open Data.
    • Use theย QGIS2threejs documentationย to visualize a Digital Elevation Model (DEM).
    • Useย Jennifer Sta. Ines’s tutorial to conduct a simple statistical analysis in QGIS.
  2. Finalsย are due in about a month. The requirements will be similar to midterms, with a possible simpleย analysis component. Start thinking about it!
  3. Install R in preparation for next week’s class. Download this sample stats file.
