Problem

How many happy people in the US?

Are all people happy? Or more of them sad? It’s interesting to know how many happy people are there in the world specifically in the US.

 

Goal

How might we visualize people emotions in the US.

 

Technologies

In this project, I used p5.js, a JavaScript framework for creating interactive experiences, for data visualization. Also, for map visualization, I used Mappa. It is a JavaScript library to facilitate using Geolocation.

 

What did I learn?

This is a small project for Intro to Computational Media class. Even though it’s just a small project, I was able to explore how to visualize data using specific JavaScript libraries. Turned out, it didn’t really hard to visualize data. The harder part is, how to make the data is understandable from user point of view.
