News Topics during COVID-19

Duration: January 2020 to May 2020

Role: Data Visualization Designer

Tool: Tableau


In this project, my team used data visualizations to assess the topics that different news media outlets have focused on when they discuss COVID-19. I was the data visualization designer in the team. I designed different types of graphs to show different information:

1. Comparisons between two parties' media topics coverage: back to back graph (2 different versions)

2. Percentage of coverage allocated to each topic: bar graph

3. Coverage per partisanship: treemaps

4. Change of "virus" topic coverage over time: line chart

5. World cloud to show different topics' coverage proportion
