Course Description

Visualization plays a fundamental role in understanding properties and relationships in data to extract insights and communicate results. Whether the analytics is descriptive, diagnostic, prescriptive, or proscriptive, visualization is essential throughout any analytics cycle. This course will focus on applying various methods and techniques to different stages of the analytics cycle such as during data preparation, modeling, and reporting. Students will learn techniques for visualizing univariate, multivariate, temporal, text-based, hierarchical, and network/graph-based data both in ad hoc analysis as well as in automated generation.
