Visual Analytics

This course explores techniques and best practices in visualizing data. From simple cross tabs to more complex multi-dimensional analysis, the course explores why particular data visualizations can better illustrate patterns and correlations inherent in the data itself. Further, the course examines cognitive function and its role in data visualization designs; showing that data visualization can reveal answers and questions alike. Utilizing state of the art software, the use of parameters, filters, calculated variables, color, space and motion to visually articulate the data are surveyed. Moreover, the use of dashboards to quickly reveal data-driven information that has daily relevance to executives, managers, supervisors and line personnel are investigated. Lastly, common pitfalls in visualization design and why less is often more are considered.
