With our new school calendar shifted two weeks up, it seems like all of the end-of-the-year hoopla is compounded by two! Needless to say, time has NOT been on my side. Alas, baby is down and coffee’s been had. I wanted to incorporate more map data this year, hopefully this keeps us interested. While creating/updating this infographic, I found/used a website called ColorBrewer to find a decent color gradient for my choropleth maps. ColorBrewer brands itself as giving color advice for maps-exactly what I was looking for. Way to go Penn State!
Compiling all of the data from 51 different Excel spreadsheets was the bear here, but once everything was compiled, I used Piktochart’s nice map/charting feature to create a choropleth map that I easily inserted into the presentation. For now, it is meant for web-viewing. I will need time to create a static version. And without further
adoo…. adieux………adieu….the 2016 AP Human Geography Exam Breakdown (eagerly awaiting the 2017 questions).
Good luck this Friday everyone!
