Observation Map


Select a place for two 30 mins observations, and then you are going to observe something there such as sounds, human behavior, traffics, etc. As a research method, you must take a note or a sketch, recording sounds, or video shooting. It would be the raw data for visualization that you must analyze later. You have to observe twice at the same place but at different dates or times for comparison.

You’ve learned about how to visualize the different information through the lectures as well as case studies. Based on your new knowledge of visualizing information, you are going to visualize the information that you observed. Visualize your observations in order to let your audience know about your discovery quickly and efficiently.
