Select a “sufficiently large” and “complex” dataset from publicly available sources
See potential public sources listed in Course Resources on Blackboard)
“Sufficiently large” means enough data to provide reasonably detailed analysis o But not too large for your computing resources (desktop, laptop, AWS etc.)
o Approximately size between 200 MB – 500 MB
“Complex” means contains variety of data types like categorical, nominal, interval, ratio etc.
Introduction (about overall project)
