Requirements

Capsidea prides itself on being a tool for Non-technical users. No prior coding experience is required. The visualizations themselves, however, will need to measure up to a certain level of completion. They can be on any subject that interests you so long as it is reasonably relevant. Topics include, but are Not limited to, sports, ecoNomics, world news, politics, the rich and famous, etc. Below are links to a few data visualizations that would be acceptable and have reached the required level of polish. https://capsidea.com/share/Brief-History-of-the-Syrian-Conflict https://capsidea.com/share/IMF-Outstanding-Credit Notice that each of the dashboards also contain text. Although these contain mostly news-like summaries, you may also input personal opinion and analysis to make the visualization more interesting if it is appropriate. Once you have created the dashboard, you will need to share it on twitter (@capsidea) and also post it to the /r/dataisbeautiful subreddit.
