Course objectives
The goal is to provide students with the overview of the field of visualization and its principles and methods. The course includes basic concepts of visualization and its application to different input data sets. Students also will be acquainted with various interaction techniques for data manipulation and with practical applications of visualization, such as in medicine, art etc. An important part of this course contains a practical exercises performed on various visualization tools. In the end of this course, students should be able to design and develop their own effective visualizations.
Learning outcomes
After passing this course, the students will be able to: - evaluate the suitability of existing visualization techniques for a given task - determine the basic mistakes of existing visualization solutions - design an appropriate visualizations for given tasks - implement an optimized solution of a selected visualization
