In several real-world situations we try to understand some phenomena, data, and events using graphics. Some aspects of reality, such as finding a route in a city, analysing the stock market trends during a certain period, or understanding the weather forecast in Europe, may be understood better using graphics rather than text. Graphics are powerful as they instantly convey large amounts of information, and allow us to recognise essential features and make important inferences. Information Visualization explores the use of computer-supported interactive visual representations, with the aim of explaining data, amplifying understanding, and supporting rational choice. In this course students will learn how to represent pictorially structured and unstructured data, to make them easier to comprehend and interpret.
