In this course, you will get the knowledge of theoretical background
for visualization and the application of visualization in real-world
examples. The visualization methods are aimed at exploiting both the
full power of computer technologies and the characteristics (and
limits) of human perception. Well-chosen visualization methods can
help to reveal hidden dependencies in the data that are not evident at
the first glance. This in turn enables a more precise analysis of the
data, or provides a deeper insight into the core of the particular
problem represented by the data.
Study targets
To master basic methods and tools for data visualization - both in the field of information visualization and scientific visualization as well.
