Conclusion: Through this project we learned a lot about the topics that we researched, “Bombs” and “Terrorists”. The graphs and data provided by Google Trends gave us insight to knowledge of these topics. We learned that by looking at a graph and where its highs and lows are can tell you a lot about your search terms. We noticed that the spikes in the graph of both terms related to terrorist attacks that occurred during the same time period of the spikes. The spikes in the graph that related to the events led us to learn about many terrorist attacks that have involved bombs around the world. We researched those major attacks and their destruction which helped us understand why people researched those terms (spike in the graphs). Also we learned that not only does the data we gathered connect to terrorist bombings in the past but to current events happening today where people are interested in these terms. For example, the term “Bomb” spiked when the leader of North Korea threatened the U.S. with a nuclear bomb. This is a very current event where there wasn’t necessarily an actual attack or event but just a threat that led to a massive spike. This helped us learn that terms that are searched more don’t necessarily spike just because of a massive event, there are smaller things that can trigger a bigger interest in the topic. We also learned a lot about our topics through the maps that Google Trends provided. Through the worldwide map we were able to see the interest in our topics on a global scale. We were able to make connections about why in some countries there was an increased popularity in the topics and in other it was not prevalent at all. This Data Project helped us learn to read and interpret data from graphs, maps and other sources. Then with that information we learned to make connections with articles and sources that we found.
