Project Description

In this project, we’ll be creating an interactive data analysis dashboard using a tool called Shiny. Our project will revolve around Uber rides data, and the goal is to build a user-friendly interface that allows us to explore and understand this dataset. 

The dashboard will be split into sections or tabs, each serving a unique purpose. In the Home tab, we’ll visualize ride frequency and display it on a map. The Scatter Plot tab will let us see where Uber rides are concentrated on a map. The Bar Chart tab will provide insights into ride trends based on selected time intervals for a more aggregated view.

Behind the scenes, we’ll load and preprocess the data, ensuring it’s ready for visualization. We’ll also set up the server logic to control the interaction between user inputs and visual outputs. This will involve configuring various types of plots and making them responsive to user choices.
