Homework 3-2

Introduction

In this homework, you'll be further exploring data visualizations in Plotly. We'd like you to find your own data set and visualize it. Some potential sources of data sets are:

  • Data.gov, which is the US government's public datasets
  • FiveThirtyEight: click clone or download and then download ZIP to download all of their data sets
  • Socrata

Your data set should be a csv file with multiple numerical columns.

Task

Once you have found the dataset, you should visualize it. Use Plotly to create three different plots of the dataset. Each of your plots should tell us something new about the data set, which can be done by plotting different data or by using different types of plots. For example, a plot of name popularity over time shows different information than a histogram of which names are most popular in a given year.

Each plot should have a title and axis labels. One of your plots should have multiple items plotted together and be appropriately labeled with a legend.

Make sure that your Python file somewhere includes the number of hours you worked, whether you went to TA hours, and any collaborators.


Once you're done, share or email a folder or zip file containing your Python script and your three plots to cs0030handin@gmail.com by midnight, 4/17. Make sure that your Python file somewhere includes the number of hours you worked, whether you went to TA hours, and any collaborators. Make sure your submission has your name in the filename: FirstLast_HW3-2.
