Data Visualisation Assignment
You work as a report analyst for a large media organisation. The organisation wants to develop a series of stories related to homelessness in Australia. They have asked your group to source and analyse related data. A variety of solutions have been designed to help users visually explore data sets and present findings.
The task in this assignment is to use an existing visualization tool (SAP Business Objects Cloud) to and create a series of visualisations which tell a story about a particular aspect of homelessness in Australia. These visualisations are to be used as the basis to create a video (5 minute) with commentary.
You should maintain a (digital) notebook that documents describes the process and reflections from the process you undertook. The goal of this assignment to better understand the process of using visualisations to perform exploratory and explanatory data analysis.
NOTE: We are interested in seeing the evolution of your thoughts and investigation. We are not interested in just a final answer or step by step instructions! Please document your discovery progress (BLOG).

How you will be assessed:
It is about using data to tell a story and not just presenting charts. You should identify an aspect of homelessness in Australia and try and provide insight to data rather than just quantifying it.
The extent of sourcing and preparation of data, the quality of visualisations, the story which is told based on exploration and explanation. These details will be expressed through your digital documents to be written in a blog format.

10%: Data sources and preparation
40%: Description of whether / how / why / when the story evolves, along with visualisations (blog)
50%: video of findings
