In groups, apply advanced data analysis and visualisation skills, and create meaningful data visualisations for a public dataset. Then, create a 5-10-minute presentation as a short video explaining the findings of your visual analysis.
In Module 3, you learnt about Advanced Data Visualisations techniques. You have also explored different analysis methods and the usage of statistics in data analysis. This group presentation gives you the opportunity to select publicly available datasets, transform, perform analysis, use advanced visualisation techniques on the data, identify meaningful insight into what selected data has to offer.
Step 1: Group formation and registration
Form groups of two members each.You may seek help from your learning facilitator.
Step 2: Find out the issues that the selected data has. Make note of all the identified issues. For every issue identified you should have a solid rationale.
Step 3: Analyse selected data using the selected tool and implement the advanced visualisation technique. Creating meaningful visualisations that give you more visual insight into data.
Step 4: Based on analysis using visualisation, identify important finding about that data.
Step 5: Carefully identify your limitations.
Step 6: Now create a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation having the following sections: Section1: Selected Dataset
- Provide a link to data.
- Explain why you selected this data.
Note: Section 1- May become optional if Pernix provides the dataset.
Section 2: Selected Advanced Data analytics technique/ Visual
- Explain why you selected this analysis method/ visual
- Provide a brief overview of the advanced analysis method
· Forecasting/Prediction, Trendlines, linear regression
- Decision tree/Python in power BI
· Usage of power query/DAX expressions
- Provide a one/2 slide write up explaining the usage of the selected method in the industry. You can reference any website or white paper or blog or video
- What data transformations did you do to prepare the data?
Section 3: Visualisations (Diagrams)
- On the PowerPoint slide, copy a diagram (visualisation) and beneath the visual briefly explain what information/knowledge you obtained from the diagram.
Section 4: Findings and Limitations
- Explain your findings about the selected data as a result of data analysis (/ visualisation) that you have performed.
- Enlist your limitations.
Section 5: Group Work Distribution
- Categorically explain how work was distributed between group members.
Step 7: Now using the PowerPoint, create a video collage in which your facilitator should be able to see you as well as the PowerPoint slides in the video. Please note that this 5-10-minute video is like an online presentation. Both members of the group should take part in the video equally. Please ensure that you are objective in your presentation (PowerPoint and video). Plan and rehearse the speech before creating the video.
It is essential that you use appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research. Please see more information on referencing here: http://library.laureate.net.au/research_skills/referencing
