This course provides the students with the overview of the field of visualization and its basic principles and methods. The course includes basic concepts of visualization and typical preprocessing methods for the input data. Then, we introduce typical visualizations, based on the type and dimensionality of the input data. Students are acquainted with typical interaction techniques for data manipulation.
An intrinsic part of this course is the practical exercise: within the seminars, the students get in touch with several visualization tools and libraries, which they use for designing and developing their own visualization project.
PA214: Visualization II
This course extends the knowledge of students in visualization by introducing the research in visualizations with applications in different domains. Students are informed about the main visualization research fields: information visualization, visual analytics, and scientific visualization. These fields will be demonstrated on real application scenarios from different fields – medical, molecular, security visualization, web-based scalable visualization, visual data science, machine learning in visualization, etc. These topics will be introduced by invited speakers – experts in these specific domains.
Within the seminars, students are accustomed with the whole visualization workflow: from getting accustomed with the data domain and user requirements, design of the corresponding visualization tool and its implementation, to its final presentation.
PV259: Generative Design Programming
We will teach you how to convert any information into visual output. How cool is that?
PV160: Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory
This project-based course gives the students the opportunity to work on an individual project or participate on one of the currently running projects within the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory or Visitlab. Students can enroll to this course repeatedly which enables them to establish a long-term collaboration with these labs. Within the HCI lab, students are working namely on topics related to new forms of multimodal interaction based on virtual reality techniques. The work concentrates on algorithmic and system problems of computer graphics in general, interfaces, position detection, haptic feedback, and interconnection of solutions into functional systems. In Visitlab, students can join one of the long-term projects, related to visualization of molecules (proteins, DNA), criminological data, geological phenomena, medical data, and options to explore them in virtual environments.
