Exercise 5: Data

Pacman chart

Create a sketch that displays data loaded from a text file source (.txt, .csv, .xml, or .json). The choice of visualization is up to you, it can be a traditional graph/chart or can be a more conceptual exercise ie. comparative image sizes, visual poetry, interaction activity, etc.

The data should be sourced online and properly attributed. Many government agencies have tons of available databases & downloads (NOAA, Census, NASA, etc). Don't go overboard on the amount of data, focus instead on how you represent it.

We will present in a small exhibition.
