Here are the wires we'll walk you through today.
You'll see we are planning on less maps than expected and do dynamic stack graphs instead. We found this approach to be much better suited as it naturally gives an impression of the situation in the entire US. Animations between graphs will allow for nice comparability between facets. More about that in our meeting at 1 PM today.
This change affects scope but we can still make it work within the budget by just moving the $10,000.- we had allocated for maps and to doing stack graphs. We are planning to still have some maps on the site - on state profiles. We'll use them to situate the state and give a way to laterally browse the site by clicking from neighbor state to neighbor state. Again here: we'll talk more about this in our meeting today.
We call these deliverables "wires" because they talk about communications goals, broad functionality and rough space usage. They do not suggest specific colors, fonts, imagery or icons - we will work on these it
