Dashboard week comes to a close today and the team has been doing a fabulous job so far. I don’t think I made this nearly as tough as I did for previous groups. I guess I should work on that.

For the last day, the team will start by presenting their work from yesterday, get their new assignment, then present again at 3pm. One of the thing I love about the UK government is the access they provide to data. It’s a real shame all governments don’t do this. So, I thought I’d let the team use one of the feeds.

Today’s assignment is to use the London Air Quality API. While the data can be directly downloaded from the website, I’m requiring them to use the API so that they can get more practice calling APIs and prepping the data that comes back. Here’s a viz from our very own Carl Allchin they can use for inspiration.

The afternoon presentations will be of the dashboard they create today, plus one workflow and their favorite viz from earlier in the week. Join us at 3pm BST here.
