​Designing An Interactive Visualization To Help Users Understand Irish Road Deaths Data.


The aim of this project is to use data from a public dataset to create an interactive visualization application. The chosen dataset is deaths on Irish roads organized by year, road user type, age and gender. It is both a striking and interestingly multivariate dataset, which has great potential as a visualization. As the data is currently only available in table format, it is not enticing to look at or particularly easy to engage with. Designing and developing a web application to better visualize this information and make it interactive will greatly help to overcome these issues. The final prototype takes the form of a live web application, created with up­to­date web technologies HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript and a JS library called D3 (Data­Driven Documents).
