Learning Goal: I’m working on a engineering writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.#part 1:Look on the internet to find a data visualization to analyze that you find interesting. The visual should represent quantitative (numerical/statistical) data. The visual can be one you think is good or one you think has problems. Once you’ve found one you’d like to work with, analyze the visual by answering the following questions:What type of visual is it?
Is the visual appropriate for the type of data? Why do you think so?
What is the purpose of the visual and who is the audience? How do you know? What specific elements of the visual led you to your conclusion?
Is the color use effective? Distracting? Does the color use make the visual more or less effective? Why?
Does the design of the visual contribute to or detract from the clarity and accuracy of the visual? What specific elements support your conclusion?
#part 2: This exercise asks to you collect data and create a data visualization that communicates that data graphically.Step 1 – Collect DataAt home, or wherever you are working, collect a set of quantitative (numerical) data. Consider various types of data, for example:How long does it take to get to a specific floor in the elevator vs. climbing the stairs based on multiple tries?
What’s the ratio of books to other stuff on your shelves?
How much time do ducks spend foraging vs. just wandering around?
Think about the various processes that take time or require resources (e.g., how many almonds you eat in an hour, or the average time it takes to drink bubbly water). Think about the items you have around you and what they are used for (e.g., what apps do you check on your phone in an hour). Quantitative data is all around you–every time you do something, check something, or observe something, you are generating data. And so are the things around you–e.g., stoplights, phones, dogs, and squirrels. Select an item or items around you (including yourself) and collect the data it generates.Step 2 – Create a VisualizationOnce you have your data, draw a data visualization that represents your data. To pick the type of data visualization, go back to the Design chapter you read and review the visualization types. You can use any medium you want to create your visualization–pens, crayons, markers, or, if you are already familiar with creating visualizations digitally, use an app like Canva (Links to an external site.) or Excel.Step 3 – Share your Visualization and CommentIf you draw your visualization, you can submit a picture taken with your phone. Include your name in the title. When you share your visualization, answer the following questions about it, along with the image:What does the data visualization show?
Why did you pick that visualization format?
