Visualizing how I spent my time in college
I particularly appreciated this assignment, as it transformed how I thought about mapping and how it relates to data visualization. Prior to this assignment, I thought about maps only in relation to geography. This project allowed me to explore the more abstract meaning of a map as any sort of diagrammatic representation/relation of one thing to another. After some brainstorming, I chose to map the relationship in how I spent my time across activities, rather than focusing on any physical or geographic relationships.
When I started, I hoped to redo this project using D3 and JSON to make this more dynamic and update the aesthetic. 3 years after I initially did this project, I finally got around to it, which is up now in it's final form.
