Course Description

The first part of this course presents fundamental and advanced information visualization techniques for multi-dimensional and hierarchical data, graphs, time-series data, cartographic and categorical data. During the second half, algorithms and models for the scientific visualization of volumetric and vector-based data as well as corresponding out-of-core and level-of-detail techniques for handling very large datasets are introduced.

Various approaches presented in lectures will be studied, in part practically through labs and assignments, and with case studies. Lab classes focus on implementing, testing and evaluating the visualization approaches presented during the lectures. This course will be taught in English.
