Your assignments in this course have equipped you with the important skill of using Excel to turn data into visual elements. As you’ve learned from your textbook readings about data visualization, many businesses and organizations compile data visualizations into dashboards, which allow viewers to easily see the story told by the data.
For this discussion:
Use the Internet to find a data dashboard. This might be a dashboard from a community organization, a business, or a department of a city, state, or the federal government.
Share the link to the dashboard you located.
Comment on your impressions of the dashboard. What story is the data telling? How useful are the visualizations to your understanding of the data? What might the dashboard do differently to be more effective?
Be sure to respond to at least one of your classmates’ posts.
