We are going to have a great class on Friday. Boston Globe reporter Matt Carroll will be teaching the basics of data reporting using Google Fusion. I will be learning right along with you. You will need to have access to your Google account. Here are some resources that we’ll look at:
- “Creating data visualizations using Google Fusion tables,” by Matt Carroll
- Town outlines
- Motorcycles per 1,000 residents
- Cosmetologists per 10,000 residents
- Obama-Romney campaign donations
You should read Matt’s guide before class as well as Google’s “Basic tutorials.”
Please be on time this Friday (and every day). There are a few pieces of business we need to get done between 8 and 8:30, when Matt will begin his presentation.
