Data Visualization

Visualization provides the best means of combating information overload, as a well-designed visual encoding can supplant cognitive calculations with simpler perceptual inferences and improve comprehension, memory, and decision making. It is an efficient means to communicate with data statically and incrementally. This course covers fundamental concepts of data visualization, techniques, algorithms for creating effective visualizations based on design principles. It covers the theoretical aspects of data visualizations. The course covers visualization technologies such as D3.Js, Chart.Js, Dygraph, and R. During the course the simulation of a real-world scenario of Big Data visualization will be presented and discussed.
