COMP_SCI 496: Visualization for Scientific Communication

Quarter Offered

Winter : 2 -4:50 T ; Kay

Description

This course focuses on developing visualizations for communicating in a scientific context: papers, posters, presentations, etc. Through mini-lectures and readings, it will provide a foundation in: (1) visual perception and visual design as they relate to information visualization; (2) the construction of effective data visualizations; (3) the effective use of visualization and text in scientific articles, posters, etc; and (4) careful and correct uncertainty visualization when communicating scientific results. Students are expected to bring some existing research project they are already working on; in a semester-long project they will design/redesign the visual communication of that work with detailed feedback from the instructor. No other background is assumed.
