I want to dive deeper into data analytics, I have done quite a few basic projects e.g get a random dataset, clean/analysis it, and then make visualizations. However I want to conduct a more challenging project, e.g some web scraping, maybe using SQL and Python to analyze data and visualize it, to help solve some real-world potential scenarios. But as a typical computer science student, my brain isn't creative and struggling to think of valid ideas. One idea I had is to try to gather uber driving data at my uni and try to store this data into a SQL database and do some cleaning and analysis and try to visualize more busy spots etc.
Would be much appreciated to gather some ideas from those established in this field! thank you.
