This course will enable students to select the right visualization form to their data and present them in a way to engage their audience. We will learn through exercise how data visualizations work, what are the best practices and how to avoid common pitfalls. We will cover steps of the creation process and discuss the pros and cons of a number of published visualizations.
Deliverable based evaluation: The students work in groups and do exploratory research on a public dataset provided to them. On the last class, they will present their results. The grading is based on the quality of this deliverable.
