You have access to the in-app communication data over the three days of the Scott Jones celebration. This includes communications between the paying park visitors, as well as communications between the visitors and park services. In addition, the data also contains records indicating if and when the user sent a text to an external party.

Use visual analytics to explore and analyze the available data and develop responses to the questions below. In addition, prepare a video that shows how you used visual analytics to solve this challenge. We encourage novel visual representations and analytic approaches!
