Project details below. Read these directions carefully!: What is an infographic? Infographics are everywhere. They contain a combination of text, images, diagrams and graphs to provide an overview of a topic to a broad audience. Infographics are especially useful to convey complex scientific and technical information in an engaging and approachable way. See some infographic examples here: https://oceanservice.noaa.gov/infographics (Links to an external site.) Project Overview For this project you will create an infographic that describes an existing environmental sensing technology and how it has been used to observe an environmental process or change. As discussed in class, these processes or changes can occur on daily, seasonal, or long-term scales. Creating an infographic enables you to both solidify your own knowledge on a topic and to learn how to communicate it in an informative way. Necessary components of your infographic Technology overview: Includes a description of how it functions, benefits and limitations, what type of data it collects and at least one labeled image of instrument parts. Environmental application: Includes at least one graph of data collected from the technology, a description of the pattern/change observed and location of collected data. Recall the various data portals we used to data from various sources (. NANOOS, Ocean Data Viewer, NASA State of the Ocean, Simons CMAP etc.) can help you find data and graphs for this section. Your infographic should contain both text and images to show the above information References for both information and data should be included at the bottom Peer review You will be assigned to peer review infographics of two of your fellow students. You will use the attached rubric to evaluate the infographics of your peers. Each student will present their infographics as part of a gallery walk during the last lab period of class, during which time students will have time to complete their peer reviews. Grade breakdown The infographic comprises 35% of your total grade in this class. Your created infographic comprises 30% and the peer evaluations you submit will comprise 5%. To receive full credit for this assignment you must complete both components, your infographic and two peer reviews. Design tips Use PowerPoint to organize your Infographic text, images and graphs onto one slide. Create a good balance of images to text so a viewer unfamiliar with the topic can follow easily. When figuring out how much information to include, consider what information your viewer needs to know versus what is nice to know but not essential Have fun and be creative!
