Data is everywhere, and being able to explore, analyze, and explain it is becoming a critical skill in computer science. In this class, you will study the art and science of information visualization and interface designs for information systems. The lectures will cover design principles of human-computer interaction, as well as visualization techniques for navigating and understanding nonspatial and higher dimensional data. You will learn about implementation and performance issues, tradeoffs, and evaluation of interactive information systems through working on homeworks and class projects. You are expected to give presentations of your visualization/interface designs to the whole class.
