Data Analysis and preliminary sketches
Portion of Raw Data
This is the raw data given by Pompidou Centre Library. Basically it shows 5 di erent kinds of data: They are SEARCH ID, TIMESTAMP, DOMAIN, URL AND TITLE
Some Facts I found from the Raw Data:
1. The timestamp each day is from 6:00 AM – 17:00PM
2. The seached times on each day from March 17th - March 22th is generally evenly distributed. However the number of search time on March 20th is nearly two times of others
3. Many of the domains visitors used are repetitive.
Thurs, I found out it will be interesting to include the counts of search times each day, while speci cally emphasize di erent time on each day to see it’s relationship with the content of news being searched.
I deleted session.id column, url column.
Organized data includes:
DATE, TIME, DOMAIN,TITLE AND COUNTS
Above the middle timeline means Morning Below the middle timeline means Afternoon Transparency is based on NUMBER OF COUNTS Type size is based on NUMBER OF COUNTS Rotation of lines is based on Time
Time can be read Vertically on side view, which means the Top points is 6 AM and the Bottom Points is 17 PM
