What it does
CollegeViz is a web based visualization tool that visualizes college data related to mobility from two different sources and helps the user see societal trends in economic opportunity as a result of higher education. For instance, one can see correlations between type of institution, mobility rate from the bottom 20% of income to top 1%, and admission rate.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into and what we learned
A lot of the data was separate for public and private college, was n/a, or obviously wrong. We had to learn how to create separate data categories and fix data through heuristic measures (for instance, a 1% admission rate is likely inaccurate).
What's next for CollegeViz
Integration of geographic data into the visualization for further context into trends.
