The P7-DataFile includes extensive data about Olympic medalists from 1980-2008. Your job is to create a professional dashboard to show various and interesting aspects of the data. You must include several elements as listed below. You also must focus on appearance and symmetry in your dashboard. You have complete flexibility on what aspects of the data you choose to focus on, but your charts and other elements must visualize or communicate the chosen data effectively and appropriately. You should not copy or use anyone elseâ€™s ideas for your dashboard. If your dashboard is the same as anyone elseâ€™s dashboard(s), all similar projects will only be given partial credit.
