Basics in Information Visualization
Information Visualization (InfoVis) covers the development of tools for better understanding and analyses of abstract information using the human visual system. Abstract information can normally not be transferred into the physical world. This course gives you an overview of the most important techniques of this research area as well as applications. Covered topics are among others: interaction techniques, visulization techniques (e.g., level of detail, navigation, focus and context, focussing, 2D/2.5D/3D, ...), or visualization of hierarchical data.
The course Applied Information Visualization extends this course with visualization techniques and systems for special data sets.
