It was a fun challenge trying (but failing) to create data visualizations that weren’t completely influenced by what I’d seen from my peers who had completed this assignment already ( I joined the class a week late). I don’t think it’s drastically different from what’s already out there but I did have a good time trying to push the interactivity on two of these. The biggest challenge was trying to code that interactive bar graph (c). I got stuck figuring out how I could select one data point at a time. For this, I reached out and got logic advice from a resident and friend.
