Dashboard week has evolved over the years. I now enlist former DSers to help choose and verify the data sources. Good idea since I have given them some data sets that didn't work before.
For DS22, Valerija Kirjackaja from DS21 was kind enough to help whilst she waited for her first placement to start. She picked a very topical data set today: Historical Greenhouse Gas Emissions from 1850-2014. Here are the basic rules:
- Work alone, but they can use Convo for help if they are stuck.
- Prep the data and create a dashboard
- Write a blog post
- Present at 3pm
There will definitely be some challenges thrown in this week that the team won't be expecting.
Datasource: World Resources Institute
The data contains historical emissions and derivative indicators for 186 countries, 6 gases, and several economics sectors. There is also contains socio-economic data for the same countries. A separate dataset with emission predictions is also available. Bonus points if they can find data beyond 2014.
The expectation for today is to create a KPI dashboard, a dashboard that informs.
