Below are two rough sketches for my week 4 project for Alberto Cairo’s MOOC for data visualization and information graphics. The focus was on recent U.S. unemployment data shared by the Guadian.
My target audience is students who are about to graduate and are considering where to work. I wasn’t able to find it but I would want to explore and include employment rates by industry by state and see what information arises. I wanted to focus on the visualization being a tool.
The second layer is when the user clicks on the ‘By industry’ option when they are looking at the state level information.
