INST327: Database Design and Modeling Section ESG1
Group 9
Team Member: Mario Zuniga, Chen Wang, Andres Perez, Chaerim Lee, Xue Qi Yao
Introduction:
The database topic we chose to do, was a group of leaders, presidents, and important public figures around the world. Our database will include the names of major public figures who have a lot of control in certain parts of the world. Our database will include current public figures from the years 2020 onward and will differentiate the difference between public figures from different parts of the world. For example, the top leader in the United States is the president, but for other places the label is something else. Our database will help differentiate between the two for those who need it.
Also, we will collect other fun facts and statistics of a group of leaders such as leaders’ weight, height, number of children, length of life, cause of death, and date of election. We chose a group of leaders, presidents, and important public figures around the world as our topic because we want to learn about not only our nation’s history and culture but also other nations’. We look forward to collecting real data for this project as we want to provide accurate information about history.
Target audience:
The targeted demographic that we are trying to reach, are mostly students. Students are most likely to use databases in their assignments and the like, and as a student myself I use databases all the time for most of my classes. Since our database is about current public figures, someone would likely use this as a way to look and compare current world leaders from each other. Or, if a person were to be doing a paper on a current leader, this database would be useful for them to utilize. We hope that our database would be used to help those who need a little extra help on their assignments. Our data could be used for education on history to learn as our database will hold real data.
Sample data:
For obtaining sample data, our group will be collecting real data. As our topic is a group of leaders in the US and other parts of the world, we want to obtain accurate data of leaders, presidents, and public figures from the past to present. We will not be building any sample data on collecting sample data. We will retrieve the collected data from the following data sources.
