1. Each group can
have 4 students. Students can find their teammates and those students who
fail to form their own group will be assigned by the instructor.
2. Each group will
pick one of the following topics. Students are also allowed to pick
topics based on thier own interests, but they need to consult with the
instructor beforehand. Based on the picked topic, each group will be
assigned a project mentor. If you wan to suggest your own topic, please
direclty talk to the professor and submit a proposal.

3. Evaluation. The
project will be seperated into two phases.
In phase I, each group
need to get familiar with the task and the data. As a result, they need
to hand a report including the following: 1. what is the general
structure of the data. 2. what is the design requirement. 3. what is your
design. 4. Is there any design alternatives you have considered. 5. why
you choose your appraoch over others.
phase I will count
20% of the whole project and due on Mar. 30.
In phase II, each
group need to implement their design. Both static and dynamic
visualization are allowed. phase II will count 80% of the whole project
and due on May. 15. The evaluation contains two parts:
- each group need to demonstrate their result,
including demo their results, describe their design through their
figures/system, illustrate how they found the patterns. This part
count 60% of phase II.
- each student will be asked to descirbe his/her
own contribution, and will be asked a few questions about the code
and how is thier system work. This part count 40% of phase II.
