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.
