If you’re coming to today’s Tech Camp — and you should — here are few links that we’ll reference during our second Google Fusion workshop:
1.) A list of U.S. state foods from Wikipedia. (I’ll show you how to import this into Fusion during the workshop.)
2.) A file containing information on the boundaries of the U.S. states. (I found this through Google’s Tabels search interface, which you can see here.)
Our goal will be to create the following: A map that uses different shades of a color to show obesity rates and illustrates official state foods; a timeline that shows when each official food was adopted; a chart or other type of visualization that tells us something else about this information.
If you missed last week’s overview of Fusion, here’s everything you need to know.
