DSC 352 - Data Visualization

3 CR

The use of visualization techniques to aid understanding, analysis of complex data, and to information important decisions is increasingly employed by many disciplines. This course will cover how to best represent different sets of data through understanding human perception, careful analysis of data types, creation of visual representation techniques, and evaluation of information in its visualized format for cognitive understanding and implied meaning. Students will engage in visualization creation using different data sets and implementation protocols and techniques to create basic presentations to more complex data visualizations. Topics covered include basic issues in representation, encoding data, presentation challenges, and different interaction frameworks. (This course is cross listed with CIS 352  and INT 352 .)

Prerequisite(s): CIS 101  or CIS 135  or CIS 150  or CIS 360  or permission of instructor.
