1. Composition deals with the overall readability and meaning of the project. As noted by Kirk (2016), the topic of composition is divided into project-level and chart-level composition. Select one component of either project composition or chart composition and discuss.
2. We have spent the past weeks working on the individual visualization layers and last week we learned how the layers all fit together. This week we will concentrate on creating visualizations (write) and consuming visualizations (read) (Kirk, 2016). We must first learn how to understand the visualization as viewer and at the same time use our skills, knowledge and mindsets to achieve excellence in data visualization design. We will focus on “The Seven Hats of Data Visualization.” Select one of the “Hats” and expand it for your classmates.
