Visualizing Data

The graphing tool was surprising simpler than the mapping tool with Palladio. Unlike mapping, with the graphing tool it was simple to recognize the relationship between specific points and to adjust the attributes of the data and it be represented properly on the graph. Visualization of data is a unique way of displaying information aside from one dimensional conceptualizations. I used the sample data from Palladio that represented People and Places. I linked the data in the first image with the coordinates of the birthplaces of the people, linking the people dataset (their birthplace) and the places dataset (the coordinates to their birthplace) and displayed the data that way.

With the next graph that I did with Palladio I split the sample data, People and Places, and I separated the data by focusing on Gender from the People dataset and the Places data was used to represent cities that were the birthplace of each gender from the People dataset. It was interesting to see this relationship between Gender. One glob is larger than the other in the image which represents more make or females births than the other.

With the last graph I wanted to show the relationship between the People dataset and the Places dataset with respect to the individual’s birthplace and then their place of death. Weirdly the relationship shows that people’s place of birth is not too far off from their place of death in most cases.
