CSE 557A: INFORMATION VISUALIZATION 1 Assignment 1: Bar and Line Charts Due: 09-28-2016, 11:59pm (midnight) In this assignment, you will be using Processing to draw a bar chart and a line chart. This is your first assignment with Processing and you will be learning the basics of Processing such as, handling mouse events, basic intersection detection, and keeping track of the state of the visualization. You will be required to display a visualization based on input data, and there are a few concepts that you need to explore: (1) reading and parsing data; (2) mouse hovering for highlighting visual elements. Basic Requirements: 1. You will be given a simple comma delimited file (CSV) called “data.csv”. This file will have the following properties: a. It has two columns, the first column contains categorical (ordinal) data, and the second column contains quantitative data. b. The first row has labels for each column. c. There are around 10 rows of data. 2. In Processing, do the following: a. Parse the CSV file and read in the data b. The canvas should display the data in the CSV file as a bar chart as default. The bar chart should display each data item as a bar. c. The axes need to be labeled using the labels from the first row of the CSV file. The X- axis should display the categorical data and the Y-axis should display the quantitative data from the CSV file.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
