The goal of this course is to develop a broad understanding of the principles, methods, and techniques for designing effective visualizations of data. The course will span a wide range of topics, encompassing foundations for both spatial (eg. gridded data from simulations and measurement devices) and nonspatial data (eg. graphs, text, high-dimensional tabular data), as well as the theory behind vision, color, and visualization design. You will gain experience in using cutting-edge data analysis systems, as well as in developing your own interactive visualization tools.
