This course introduces the core data visualisation and visual interaction (or navigation) technologies that support visual analytics and decision-making processes. Essential understanding of the procedure (loop) and the methodology of visual data analytics will be facilitated. In addition, human involvement (or input) in the loop of analytical reasoning, facilitated by interactive visual interfaces, will be discussed.
During the course, participants will develop capabilities in designing and evaluating various advanced visualisation interfaces that can be directly applied into the loop of visual data mining or visual analytics. This will allow participants to begin applying data visualisation techniques in their work or study, as well as establish foundations for further study in the field, on the way to becoming data visualisation designers or visual data analysts.
