Excellent Data Visualization Projects

**1. Create a Viz on Cricket Stadiums **

**Cricket is a passion for many people. In this project, a group of cricket enthusiasts and Google Maps worked together to show the different shapes of cricket stadiums in England. The above visualization is a product of BBC Sports Edition and Google. The best thing about this visualization is its level of detail and simplicity. It is based on a straightforward premise yet shares a lot of detail with the viewer. **

**You can create a similar data visualization on other scenic locations and reflect the difference between their views. Such data visualization would help you experiment with video content and explore how you can incorporate it better in your skillset. For starters, you can create a similar viz for cricket stadiums in the Indian subcontinent or Australia. **

2. An Astronomical Viz

**National Geographic has always been a leader in photography. They are also innovators in the field of data visualization. The above display, The Atlas of Moons, shows the various moons present in our solar system and it starts with our moon. The visualization is scrollable, which makes it more immersive and enjoyable. You can navigate every moon and their orbits, finding out more information about them. **

**This visualization is the perfect combination of art and data. You can try to imitate this project and create a scrollable visualization yourself. You can pick a similar topic, such as the planets in our solar system. This project can help you try out unique methods of showing data and understanding how you can represent comparisons between multiple objects. **

3. Show the Wilderness of Australia

Nature is beautiful in itself, but in the above visualization, Jonni Walker has shown its beauty in the form of data visualization. The above viz indicates the location and extent of bioluminescence present on the coast of Australia. All the relevant data and legend is present on the map, making it easy to read and comprehend. Jonni had created it on Tableau.

**You can create a similar visualization for bioluminescence on other coasts of the world (there are many). Or, you can simply try to replicate this visualization with your tools and see how it turns out. If you’re interested in nature studies and want to use your data visualization skills in this sector, then this project will help you get ahead. This project would help you in understanding how you can use data visualization to study nature and relevant topics. Try mimicking this project. **

4. Show Our Advances in Space

**There’s a profound relationship between space and data visualizations. Maybe it’s the level of detail and expanse in both of these things that causes people to combine the two so often. **

**The data visualization we’ve shared above is called Leaps in Space, and it’s a product of Bureau Oberhauser. The visualization shows the numerous things humans planned to do in 2021 alone. You can create a similar visualization to show the things humans have done in some other year. Or, you can take this approach to show the **achievements of India in space.

Not only will this project put your creative skills to test, but it will also give you experience in uniquely showing calendar visualizations. On a side note, you can use this visualization as a wallpaper or a poster too.

5. A Project for Culture and Art

**Are you a culture enthusiast? If you are, then this is a great project inspiration. Sybolikon is a collection of various ancient symbols of different cultures. All of these symbols are artistically rendered and belong to different sections of history. If you have a designer friend who might want to use these symbols, then they can buy access to it on their website. **

**You can build a similar visualization collection. As the creator of this project has used symbols in this project, you can use another cultural artwork (such as flags or emblems). It’s a great visualization project to show your knowledge of design and research. Currently, Symbolikon has more than 800 symbols in its collection. You can start with 50 or a few hundred. **

6. Create a Visualisation on a Book

This visualization is stellar! In 1979, Italo Calvino, an Italian writer, had written a conceptual book that discusses reading another book (interesting topic indeed). Since its release, it has become a cult book for readers, writers, and conceptual artists.

**Data visualization artist Hanna Piotrowska, in 2019, used this book to create a mesmerizing data visualization project. In her work, the original text shines while her collection of data visualizations enhances its beauty further. You can take inspiration from this project and create a mesmerizing data visualization for a book. You can find other interesting conceptual books and show off your data visualization skills. A great thing about this project is you have a lot of leeway in choosing the kind of book you want to work on. In the example we shared, the creator of this project chose a book on writing. You can choose a book on another subject (such as physics or something else) to create this project. **

7. Visualize History with Data

**This project is for history lovers. Charles Minard created the above visualization, and it shows that tools aren’t crucial for communicating information effectively. Why is that so? **

**Well, Charles had created this lithograph in 1869, way before HTML or Tableau existed. It shows Napoleon’s Russian army, the temperatures they faced, and their movements. The level of detail in this visualization is fantastic, and you can take a lot of inspiration from it to create beautiful visualizations yourself. This project also highlights the value of practical communication skills and knowledge of datasets. **

**You can try to imitate this project and create a history-based visualization yourself. You can focus on a historical event like this (such as the Battle of Panipat). Moreover, you can highlight the instances of that event like the one in this project we’ve shared. Or, you can try to mimic this visualization by using the tools present in your arsenal. After you’ve created this visualization with your tools, try to figure out how Charles Minard would’ve kept this lithograph accurate. **

8. Show the Possibility of Life in Space

Have you always wondered if there’s extraterrestrial life? Do you think there are living beings on another planet? Well, this visualization explores just that.

**It’s a product of National Geographic, and even though we have one from them, we couldn’t resist adding this one in the list too. This visualization shows the planets in our solar system and beyond which have suitable conditions to support life. They used data from the Planetary Habitability Lab of the University of Puerto Rico. Their exciting way of showing the habitability of different planets is admirable. **

**You can create a similar visualization based on a similar topic. For example, you can create a small visualization for the habitability of the planets in our solar system. It’s undoubtedly one of the best data visualization project ideas for space enthusiasts. **

9. Highlight Migration Patterns

Here is a data visualization on The New York Times where they have shown the moving patterns of Americans from 1990 to 2012. The flow of data in this viz is mesmerizing and unique. It explores where people living in a particular state were born and where they moved. You can take a similar approach to create a smaller version of this visualization yourself. The best thing about this project is, you can use it for many subjects. For example, you can show the migration pattern of birds, or, you can show the migration pattern of people living in a specific state (such as Maharashtra or Uttar Pradesh).

Nonetheless, this is a great project to get inspiration from. You’d learn a lot about representing such data by working on this one.

How To Blend Data in Google Data Studio For Better Data Analysis

Using data to inform decisions is essential to product management, or anything really. And thankfully, we aren’t short of it. Any online application generates an abundance of data and it’s up to us to collect it and then make sense of it.

Google Data Studio helps us understand the meaning behind data, enabling us to build beautiful visualizations and dashboards that transform data into stories. If it wasn’t already, data literacy is as much a fundamental skill as learning to read or write. Or it certainly will be.

Nothing is more powerful than data democracy, where anyone in your organization can regularly make decisions informed with data. As part of enabling this, we need to be able to visualize data in a way that brings it to life and makes it more accessible. I’ve recently been learning how to do this and wanted to share some of the cool ways you can do this in Google Data Studio.

This article is also going to help you if you’re an enthusiast looking forward to explore and enhance your Android skills. The reason is that we’re here to provide you the best ideas of Android Project with source code that you can choose as per your choice.

These project ideas are simple suggestions to help you deal with the difficulty of choosing the correct projects. In this article, we’ll see the project ideas from beginners level and later we’ll move on to intermediate to advance.

top android projects with source code

Android Projects with Source Code

Before working on real-time projects, it is recommended to create a sample hello world project in android studio and get a flavor of project creation as well as execution: Create your first android project

Android Projects for beginners

1. Calculator

build a simple calculator app in android studio source code

Android Project: A calculator will be an easy application if you have just learned Android and coding for Java. This Application will simply take the input values and the operation to be performed from the users. After taking the input it’ll return the results to them on the screen. This is a really easy application and doesn’t need use of any particular package.

To make a calculator you’d need Android IDE, Kotlin/Java for coding, and for layout of your application, you’d need XML or JSON. For this, coding would be the same as that in any language, but in the form of an application. Not to forget creating a calculator initially will increase your logical thinking.

Once the user installs the calculator, they’re ready to use it even without the internet. They’ll enter the values, and the application will show them the value after performing the given operations on the entered operands.

Source Code: Simple Calculator Project

2. A Reminder App

Android Project: This is a good project for beginners. A Reminder App can help you set reminders for different events that you have throughout the day. It’ll help you stay updated with all your tasks for the day. It can be useful for all those who are not so good at organizing their plans and forget easily. This would be a simple application just whose task would be just to remind you of something at a particular time.

To make a Reminder App you need to code in Kotlin/Java and design the layout using XML or JSON. For the functionality of the app, you’d need to make use of AlarmManager Class and Notifications in Android.

In this, the user would be able to set reminders and time in the application. Users can schedule reminders that would remind them to drink water again and again throughout the day. Or to remind them of their medications.

3. Quiz Application

Android Project: Another beginner’s level project Idea can be a Quiz Application in android. Here you can provide the users with Quiz on various general knowledge topics. These practices will ensure that you’re able to set the layouts properly and slowly increase your pace of learning the Android application development. In this you’ll learn to use various Layout components at the same time understanding them better.

To make a quiz application you’ll need to code in Java and set layouts using xml or java whichever you prefer. You can also use JSON for the layouts whichever preferable.

In the app, questions would be asked and answers would be shown as multiple choices. The user selects the answer and gets shown on the screen if the answers are correct. In the end the final marks would be shown to the users.

4. Simple Tic-Tac-Toe

android project tic tac toe game app

Android Project: Tic-Tac-Toe is a nice game, I guess most of you all are well aware of it. This will be a game for two players. In this android game, users would be putting X and O in the given 9 parts of a box one by one. The first player to arrange X or O in an adjacent line of three wins.

To build this game, you’d need Java and XML for Android Studio. And simply apply the logic on that. This game will have a set of three matches. So, it’ll also have a scoreboard. This scoreboard will show the final result at the end of one complete set.

Upon entering the game they’ll enter their names. And that’s when the game begins. They’ll touch one of the empty boxes present there and get their turn one by one. At the end of the game, there would be a winner declared.

Source Code: Tic Tac Toe Game Project

5. Stopwatch

Android Project: A stopwatch is another simple android project idea that will work the same as a normal handheld timepiece that measures the time elapsed between its activation and deactivation. This application will have three buttons that are: start, stop, and hold.

This application would need to use Java and XML. For this application, we need to set the timer properly as it is initially set to milliseconds, and that should be converted to minutes and then hours properly. The users can use this application and all they’d need to do is, start the stopwatch and then stop it when they are done. They can also pause the timer and continue it again when they like.

6. To Do App

Android Project: This is another very simple project idea for you as a beginner. This application as the name suggests will be a To-Do list holding app. It’ll store the users schedules and their upcoming meetings or events. In this application, users will be enabled to write their important notes as well. To make it safe, provide a login page before the user can access it.

So, this app will have a login page, sign-up page, logout system, and the area to write their tasks, events, or important notes. You can build it in android studio using Java and XML at ease. Using XML you can build the user interface as user-friendly as you can. And to store the users’ data, you can use SQLite enabling the users to even delete the data permanently.

Now for users, they will sign up and get access to the write section. Here the users can note down the things and store them permanently. Users can also alter the data or delete them. Finally, they can logout and also, login again and again whenever they like.

7. Roman to decimal converter

Android Project: This app is aimed at the conversion of Roman numbers to their significant decimal number. It’ll help to check the meaning of the roman numbers. Moreover, it will be easy to develop and will help you get your hands on coding and Android.

You need to use Android Studio, Java for coding and XML for interface. The application will take input from the users and convert them to decimal. Once it converts the Roman no. into decimal, it will show the results on the screen.

The users are supposed to just enter the Roman Number and they’ll get the decimal values on the screen. This can be a good android project for final year students.

8. Virtual Dice Roller

Android Project: Well, coming to this part that is Virtual Dice or a random no. generator. It is another simple but interesting app for computer science students. The only task that it would need to do would be to generate a number randomly. This can help people who’re often confused between two or more things.

Using a simple random number generator you can actually create something as good as this. All you’d need to do is get you hands-on OnClick listeners. And a good layout would be cherry on the cake.

The user’s task would be to set the range of the numbers and then click on the roll button. And the app will show them a randomly generated number. Isn’t it interesting ? Try soon!

9. A Scientific Calculator App

Android Project: This application is very important for you as a beginner as it will let you use your logical thinking and improve your programming skills. This is a scientific calculator that will help the users to do various calculations at ease.

To make this application you’d need to use Android Studio. Here you’d need to use arithmetic logics for the calculations. The user would need to give input to the application that will be in terms of numbers. After that, the user will give the operator as an input. Then the Application will calculate and generate the result on the user screen.

10. SMS App

Android Project: An SMS app is another easy but effective idea. It will let you send the SMS to various no. just in the same way as you use the default messaging application in your phone. This project will help you with better understanding of SMSManager in Android.

For this application, you would need to implement Java class SMSManager in Android. For the Layout you can use XML or JSON. Implementing SMSManager into the app is an easy task, so you would love this.

The user would be provided with the facility to text to whichever number they wish also, they’d be able to choose the numbers from the contact list. Another thing would be the Textbox, where they’ll enter their message. Once the message is entered they can happily click on the send button.
