Manipulate visualizations you completed in the first module and describe how variability, uncertainty, and context affect the interpretation of the specific data presented.

Understanding Data: Variability and Context

 

Overview:

In this module, you learned the importance of how understanding the data variability, uncertainty, and context are crucial to interpreting data.

In this assignment, you will manipulate visualizations you completed in the first module and describe how variability, uncertainty, and context affect the interpretation of the specific data presented.

Prompt:

Using the Google Public Data data set and two audience-specific visualizations created in Module One, adjust the x axis, y axis, and/or visualization style to illustrate changes in context and variability.

Write a 2- to 3-paragraph response analyzing how the changes impact the variability and context compared to your Module One visualizations.

Go to Public Data and access the Module One data set. Include the following critical elements:

Visualizations o Using the available data and tools, modify the original Module One plots, graphs, etc., for each identified audience:

Change the x axis, y axis, and/or visual style of each visual to change context and variability.

Variability, Uncertainty, and Context o Compare the Module One visual to the changed visual, and include how each of the visuals’ messages have changed overall.

Include discussion of how the variability, uncertainty, or context changed the information communicated from the Module One visual to the new visual.

Data Visualization Methods o Provide an explanation of how each change improved or distorted the information for each audience.

Explain the importance of appropriate use of variability, uncertainty, or context in visualizations
