Join Barton Poulson for an in-depth discussion in this video Chapter 3 challenge: Drawing with Processing, part of Creating Projects for Interactive Data Visualization with Processing.
This is the Chapter 3 challenge for projects for Interactive Data Visualization with Processing. For this challenge, I want you to imagine you've been contracted by the manager of four manufacturing projects. And she wants you to create a way to visualize the progress of the projects on two dimensions, such as the percentage of the engineering plans that's been completed. And the percentage of marketing plans that have been completed. And so, the idea here is that you have project A and B and C and D.
And then for each one of them, I've specified a rough amount that has to be done. So for project A, engineering is nearly complete. And marketing is nearly complete. For project B, however, engineering is only about a third and marketing is just beginning. For project C, engineering is about 2 3rd and marketing is about three quarters. For project D, engineering is just beginning but marketing is about halfway done. Now for this exercise, you don't need to use precise percentages and you don't need to label the graphs. We just need the pictures themselves.
Try to create something that's asthetically pleasing, that's interesting, and that's informative. You should allow yourself about 20 minutes for this exercise, and then we'll meet again to see one way to resolve this and compare it with your own.
