Visual Journalism – Week 02

  • Pick one or more data sources related to your question and make it into JSON format 
  • Load data into observable and find interesting information or story 
  • Sketch data visualization idea based on the information you found (paper or digital prototyping)

Article that I found:

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/07/17/upshot/coronavirus-face-mask-map.html

1. Question:

How much does local idiosyncrasies like peer pressure(i.e. partisan) affect the usage of mask in each county of the United States?

2. Data source:

I used this github source from NYtimes github link.

https://github.com/nytimes/covid-19-data/blob/master/mask-use/mask-use-by-county.csv

3. Make it JSON file in Observable

https://observablehq.com/@keunjungbae/the-mask-usage-in-usa

-> Based on that underlying information, I wondered how much peer pressure like the Political parties of each county) in USA in the article, had to do with the use of masks. Besides this, I wonder how much the mask usage is co-related to community spirit (by countries).
