Project Description

Use Processing to visualize a data set.

  

ASSIGNMENT

You're welcome to find or create your own data set, or to use the sample data sets provided in the class resources below.

"Birth dates" and "US temperatures" are fairly manageable and great for beginning students. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, there is also a fascinating and much larger data set on Manhattan trees.

Most importantly, creativity is encouraged! And of course, you're encouraged to share your work with the class, ask questions, and exchange feedback. We're looking forward to seeing your work.
