Palladio, the Death of ME

Palladio was probably the most complicated program we’ve used yet in my opinion. It’s entire concept is customizability of your project. One is supposed to be able to customize their data and organize it however they please. I found it incredibly challenging to get Palladio to do what I wanted with it. I want to create showing locations that Kris Jenner has geotagged on her Instagram photos. I don’t think that I was being over ambitious in my endeavors yet was unable to execute my task. The difficult part was not getting the geocoordinate locations for the photos i selected to focus on but with Palladio itself. I attempted to upload my own spreadsheet with the points I wanted to be highlighted on the map I was to create. I was unable to get the points I wanted to appear on the map and was even less successful in separating 2 datasets in one map and linking them with the map lines.. I was able to upload sample data provided by Palladio. One was places that mapped out to look like this:

The other map I created was with the Cushman dataset that ended up looking like this:

At this point I was able to create a map with a dataset (not a unique dataset, but a dataset) and was able to highlight the locations the dataset provided by size and color. I was unable to do much of anything else with my dataset in order to specify individual points by different colors or size. I would love to use Palladio in the future if I’d be able to understand how to use it. I could do a whole bunch of fun things with the program.
