Getting to Know the BirdWatcher Data2:17 with Carling Kirk
We've made some improvements to the BirdWatcher data.
[MUSIC] 0:00 Our bird watcher data, now has a bit more complexity to it. 0:04 We've got more birds in our data and we're keeping track of birds habitat, 0:08 size and conservation status. 0:12 Each bird has a family and a scientific name. 0:15 They usually have more than one color and come from all over the world. 0:18 We track the habitats they live in by country. 0:22 We're also tracking individual reports of people who have cited the birds and 0:25 each sighting has the time and place someone spotted the bird. 0:29 As we move through the next few videos, we'll be applying our new knowledge 0:33 on Linked to practice and help us learn more about our bird watching data. 0:38 Let's take a look at our improved bird class. 0:43 I'm going to close the console to make it a little bigger for us. 0:48 Okay, we've got common name instead of just name. 0:52 We've got properties for family, scientific name. 0:56 Instead of just color, we've got primary colors, 1:00 secondary color and a list of strings for tertiary colors. 1:02 It's got a length, width, weight and then we've got a string size, 1:07 it looks like it returns us a string based on the length property. 1:14 We've got a list of sightings, that are of type sighting. 1:19 And we've got a list of habitats that are of type place. 1:23 We'll take a look at those two later. 1:26 We've also got a conservation status which is a string, 1:29 it looks like this is our list of conservation statuses. 1:32 They also have a code. 1:36 We've got an override method for two strings, so it prints out the name. 1:38 Then it looks like there's a constructor here, we'll just ignore this for now. 1:43 Let's take a look at the sighting class first.Alright 1:49 sighting looks like a bird and a sighting date and 1:55 observer first name and last name and it also has a place of type place. 1:59 Let's take a look at place. 2:04 Place has a bunch of strings country, city, terrain type and climate. 2:08 Okay, let's take in the data and see what we can find out. 2:13
