CSCI 3665. From Data to Visualization: Designing Interactive Approaches to Understanding Information

Information visualization is used to reveal patterns and outliers within abstract data, allowing powerful perceptual abilities to support slower and more deliberate cognitive abilities. Interactive visualizations can help investigate data and assist in the formation and exploration of hypotheses. Covers topics such as the transformation of data to visual representations, common approaches to dealing with different types of data, perceptual and cultural issues that influence how visualizations are interpreted, and the development of interactive visualization tools. Culminates in a significant final interactive visualization project.
