Hauptseminar "Interactive Visualization"
Semester: SS 2016
Umfang: 2HS
Dozent: Dr. rer. nat. Michael Burch
Prof. Dr. Daniel Weiskopf

More and more data is generated and stored which comes from the progress in hardware technologies applied in various fields of applications. Software engineering, the social sciences, the field of sports, biology, chemistry, but also data from user behavior studies can build a basis for data analysis.

Visualization techniques are designed and improved with the goal to support data analysts at exploring datasets by exploiting the strengths of the human visual system. Interaction also plays a major role in the field of visualization allowing a communication between the users and the system providing them with additional views and perspectives to the data.

This advanced seminar (Hauptseminar) addresses the role of interaction in data visualizations and covers different topics from techniques to applications and evaluation.
