MDSC 6685 - Data Visualization


(5 cr.)
Big data normally refers to petabytes (1000 terabytes) or exabytes (one billion gigabytes) of unstructured data. This amount of data requires new methods to analyze, visualize, and present these data in a way that yields insight and understanding. Students in this course are introduced to elementary graphics programming, focusing primarily on two-dimensional vector graphics and the programming platforms for graphics. This infrastructure will also include lessons on the human side of visualization, studying human perception and cognition to gain a better understanding of the target of the data visualization.
