In-depth examination of a specialized topic in an emerging area of human centered design and engineering.
Advanced Topics in Information Visualization. This partial-studio, partial-seminar class will combine discussion of current infovis topics with hands-on design exercises and critiques. Every two-hour session will consist of one hour of hands-on work relevant to a particular visualization topic. The second hour will be comprised of discussion of recent papers on that topic. Topics to be covered include: color, the psychology of human vision, visual analytics, text visual analytics, network visualization, time series visualization, and class preferences. Students are encouraged to bring in ongoing research, but the studio part of the course will have several projects that focus on intermediate progress, iteration, and critique. The final project will be an iteration of one of the prior projects and an associated reflection.
