Visual Analytics (COMP5048)

UNIT OF STUDY

Information Visualisation aims to make good pictures of abstract information, such as stock prices, family trees, and software design diagrams. Well designed pictures can convey this information rapidly and effectively. The research challenge for Information Visualisation is to design and implement new algorithms that produce such pictures. Applications include visualisation of bioinformatics, social network, software visualisation and network visualisation. This unit will provide basic concepts, techniques and fundamental algorithms to achieve good visualisation of abstract information. Further, it will also provide opportunities for academic research and developing new methods for Information Visualisation.
