Assignments for May 27

Mapping: Take the individual contributors from this FEC report from Earl Hilliard of Alabama (remember, individual contributions are Schedule A, Line Number 11A), and copy the address fields (street address, city, state and zip), date and amount into a CSV file. Then create a single full_address field by using Excel’s Concatenate function.

Save that file as CSV and then upload it to Google Fusion Tables by logging on and creating a new table. Once you’ve done that, make sure that the full_address field is set to the type “Location” by using the Edit -> Modify Columns menu. Then visualize the individual contributions as a map, and share that table with me using the Share icon.

Projects: Send me an updated log by 2 p.m. Thursday, and be prepared to discuss your project in class.
