Students registered for this class are expected to complete a class project. You can work on this project on your own or in a group of up to three students. Your project should represent about 10 hours of work on developing a visual analysis of a data set of your choosing. A one page proposal for your project is due on Monday, March 25. A final report on your project is due on Friday, May 3. Your project may be shared with the class through the class web page.

## Coosing a Topic

If you have not yet identified a topis you can look at Section 12.4 Case Studies in Unwin’s book for ideas. The Data Sources link on the class Resources page also provides links to a number of data sources.

• Create a new folder called Project in your repository.
• In this folder create a new Rmarkdown file called proposal.Rmd.
